Swiss Rolex : Robust Timepieces With Solid Waterproofness And Rugged Construction

As any watch enthusiast knows, Rolex watches are not delicate timepieces that have to be worn carefully. They are robust timepieces with solid waterproofness and rugged construction.

Rugged Construction

Rolex’s build quality is known to be superior to most brands, in fact built like tanks! The bracelets and the clasps are simply excellent and second to none. A Rolex watch takes about a year to make, with nearly everything created in-house at one of the company’s 4 state-of-the-art manufacture locations in Switzerland. Each component of a single watch goes through a rigorous testing process to make sure they do not leave factory unless they are perfect.

You may or may not know that stainless steel comes in various grades and types. Most watches are made from a type called 316L, but Swiss replica Rolex uses 904L – a type of steel that, as far as we know, no one else uses. The 904L stainless steel alloy has a high corrosion resistance, and has good formability and weldability. It can resist temperatures of 450 degrees Celsius or 824 degrees Fahrenheit. The steel grade is meant to be used for the most demanding situations, and highly corrosive conditions. Few steel grades, if any, can match the 904L stainless steel alloy used by Rolex.

Solid Waterproofness

Rolex’s unique watch case, the Oyster case, boasts excellence in both form and function, and promises to be robust and waterproof whether constructed in steel, gold or platinum. The Oyster case was invented in 1926 and was the world’s first waterproof case for a wristwatch. Modern Rolex Oyster watches have a minimum water resistance of 330 feet (100 meters) with many of them featuring even higher depth ratings. Subsequently, this makes it the ideal watch to take with you to more places.

Rolex uses extreme water resistance tests – 10% greater pressure than the water resistance given on the dial, and 25% greater pressure than the water resistance level given on the dial of Rolex divers watches. Rolex has probably invented and conceived among the most well made and celebrated divers watches ever made by man! The legendary Rolex divers watches, the Submariner and the Sea Dweller have travelled to the bottom of the ocean.
