In the last post, we discussed a few of the astounding elements that make boys and girls Rolex watches so unique. However, there are plenty more fascinating parts of the manufacturing process. Here’s part two of our watch enthusiasts’ guide to understanding the value and craftsmanship of new and used Rolex President watches and all other Rolex models.
Safety And Security Measures
According to those who have the authority to enter, getting inside a Rolex manufacturing facility requires some serious stealthiness, which only seems right considering the vast amount of precious metals kept on site. Employees who are entering can expect significant security checks, including fingerprint scans for different areas of the building, as well as photography systems for security as well. Plus, every Rolex watch has a one-of-a-kind serial number that is matched with a particular case. This means that when the watch gets serviced, the watchmaker can connect to the case and learn all the essential details of that particular watch.
Rigorous Diamond Batch Testing
Part of Rolex’s legacy is the company’s dedication to quality, and they clearly go above and beyond by employing an ‘army of gemologists’ to test, buy, arrange, and set diamonds and other stones in many different Rolex varieties. Of all their duties, one of the most important is to check each and every batch of diamonds to ensure purity using x-rays. Rolex itself reports that in all the years they’ve undergone their diamond testing procedures, only two have been fake. That is, two out of an astonishing 20 million diamonds. It may not seem worth it to bother with these rigorous tests, but it just proves the brand’s never-ending dedication to purity and quality.
Ultimately, one in eight watch wearers say they wear their watch as a status symbol, but if you want to buy used Rolex President watches or any other model, understanding the craftsmanship that goes into their production can help sway you in the right direction and invest in something that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
