10 Watches That Show You're A Connoisseur

Time is of the essence as they say but the way in which we have embraced watches has now seen a growing trend of wearers. Throughout the passage of time itself, these horological models are not only feats of engineering but priceless pieces.

Considered to be the ultimate fashion accessory for both men as well as women, there is nothing better than a glamorous bit of arm candy. Meanwhile, it is much more than something that simply tells the time. From chronograph to water resistant diving watches there are a host of unique luxury timepieces available which stretch into the tens of millions.

In addition, choosing the right one to adorn your wrist is no easy feat. Much discussion and research goes into finding the perfect watch. The decision is a difficult one but we have all become accustomed with some of the finest premium watchmakers in the world from Breguet and Breitling to Cartier and of course Rolex.

Founded in 1905 by Hans Wildorf alongside Alfred Davis, his brother-in-law, Rolex was actually formed in London, England. The initial name is believed to have been Wilsdorf & Davis. However, three years later, Wilsdorf listed the trademark as "Rolex" with the opening of an office based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.

Rolex has gone on to become one of the leading, high end Swiss brands of its kind. Renowned and celebrated to the world over for its luxury and exclusivity watches can range from just a few thousand to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

They are certainly symbols of status and power among the rich and the beautiful. Famous wearers of Rolex through the ages feature Hollywood legend Marlon Brando, Sir Winston Churchill and has been worn by numerous champions including Roger Federer and Tiger Woods.

The company have been breaking the mould and constantly reinventing themselves especially when it comes to innovation. Rolex have had many firsts attached to their name such as manufacturing the world’s first self-winding watch, the first ever water resistant case and even the first timepiece to display two different time zones.

As official timekeeper, they have aligned themselves to a wealth of the finest sporting events in the world from Wimbledon to the prestigious Open golf championship. Rolex is timekeeping at its best and in its purest form and has led the way in engineering, craftsmanship and design.
