There was a time when wristwatches were not regarded as accurate time-tellers. A young man in his twenties, named Hans Wilsdorf, sought to change that with a reliable, classic timepiece that anyone could wear and named it Rolex: a five-letter name that is easy to pronounce in every language and short enough to fit the watch dial. Today, the 112-year-old company, which is reportedly the world’s most reputable company (followed by Google and Walt Disney), has defined many firsts that have become an essence in every modern-day watch. Just like this Datejust 41, which sports all of its major innovations: chronometric precision, self-winding, waterproof and date in a window. All these and more are housed in their signature models: Rolesor (a beautiful pairing of gold and steel), Everose gold (an exclusive warm pink gold), and a five-piece link Jubilee bracelet with an Oysterclasp; each one a timeless beauty that retains its value, whether it’s from 10 years ago or a hundred years later.
