1953: The original Rolex development started in 1953. Rolex Pioneer Watch ; in the early 1950s, Rolex developed a series of professional watches which are more than pure chronograph with the expertise of precision and waterproof function technology. These watches are all designed for new professional activities, including deep-sea diving, aviation, mountain climbing and scientific exploration and other uses, so that people’s watches will no longer fear the impact of nature.
1953: Sir John Hunt (Sir John Hunt), Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, Each of them wore the Rolex Oyster Watch and for the first time successfully landing on the top of Mount Everest, and the watches were normally functioned.
1953: Rolex’s Explorer-style wrist watch; the glorious achievements of human adventure provide inspiration for the birth of the oyster-style perpetual Explorer-type watch. Since its inception in 1953, it has become a landmark classic watch. 1953: The submariner Watch: submariner was born in 1953 and is the first diver’s watch with a waterproof depth of 100 meters (330 feet). The function of the rotating outer ring is to facilitate the diver to read the dive time.
1953: The first intercontinental flights: with the advent of the jet era in the late 1950s, the rapid development of international routes occurred, requiring the aircraft to travel across several time zones within a short span of time , and pilots need to know the time at the same time in different locations on Earth. 1955: In order to meet the needs of the pilots, Rolex introduced the Greenwich II watch: Greenwich TYPE II. It became a designated watch for a number of airlines, including the famous Pan Am company . The advantage of it is a duotone outer ring, which shows the time of day and night.
1956: The 1956 oyster perpetual datejust watch has achieved a notable innovation: it has a 18ct gold or platinum style, and is the world’s first watch that has on the surface a calendar window and fully-displayed days of week, which was a great technical milestone. As an example of a distinguished watch, the datejust type uses only precious metal for casting, which is favored by influential people as soon as it is published.
Throughout the history of celebrities, regardless of their foresights and achievements, they have a common character—– they all wear the datejust watch. 1956: Conseil European pour la Recherche Nucleaire (CERN) is a world-class particle physics laboratory that carries out state-of-the-art scientific research to explore the mysteries of the universe. It has the highest energy particle accelerator in the world. In the 1950 ‘s, CERN was also one of the institutes that firstly confirmed that the Milgauss watch was capable of withstanding up to 1000 gauss of(Gauss) magnetic density.
1956: Oyster-perpetual type Milgauss wrist watch was born in 1956, developed specially for scientific research, it can resist up to 1,000 gauss of magnetic density. The extraordinary magnetic resistance of the Milgauss watch is owing to its internal magnetic cap, which helps to ensure the normal operation of the movement, which also shows the strength of the Rolex workmanship. Rolex specially chooses paramagnetic alloy to create two parts of the magnetic resistant cap. Rigorously tested by CERN, it is confirmed that the watch has the perfect magnetic resistance.
1957: Lady datejust-type wrist watch is the first Rolex calendar Lady’s Precision chronograph, it will condense the elegant temperament and unique function in a small and exquisite case, more suitable for women’s slender wrist. 1960: DEEP Sea Special watch: in 1950, Rolex carried out rigorous and detailed testing to the DEEP Sea Special Experimental Watch. With the knowledge and experience of making the first two diving watches, the third generation of Deep Sea Special watch is able to withstand extreme conditions, including diving to the “Challenger depth” in Mariana Trench .
1960: in 1960, the pilot deep-sea submarine Trieste carried a Rolex experimental watch Deep Sea Special successfully dived into the deepest Mariana Trench (Mariana Trench) , which is the deepest on the Earth’s surface. Captain Don Walsh took charge of steering, who rode with Jacques Piccard , took the Trieste to the unprecedented deep-sea expedition, and this Rolex experimental watch Deep Sea Special still ran normally after going back to the surface from the bottom at a depth of 10916 meters (37800 feet).
1960: Daytona Beach, Florida State . This is a long, flat, area with sandy solid, hard as cement, the Holy Land of the Speed Racer. There were 14 land speed records which have been created here from 1904 to 1935, of which five were created by Sir Malcolm Campbell, who wore a Rolex watch. With the years of baptism, the sand quality gradually went poor. In 1959, a “super race track”-Daytona International Speedway was finally built.
The venue is quickly becoming one of the sites for world’s leading endurance car races, and is equally famous as Leaman 24-hour endurance race. Although the surface of the track is no longer made up of grains of sand, Daytona is still the venue for the “Rolex Daytona 24-hour endurance race” that challenges humans and racing car limits. 1963: The New-Generation Chronograph Daytona, launched in 1963, derives its name from a classic landmark-“Daytona” . The Cosmic chronograph Daytona watch is sturdy and waterproof, and its outer ring is equipped with a speed scale outer ring for calculating the average speed.
1963: Rolex has been working closely with French diving company Comex. Comex divers wear a Rolex-sea dweller style watch when they perform their mission in the deep sea. Under the leadership of Henri Germain Delauze, the company was a pioneer in the field of deep-sea diving and is now recognized as a landmark enterprise for underwater engineering and high pressure technology in the world.
Rolex and Comex continue to work closely together as always. Comex, based in Marseilles, has developed a high-pressure test box for testing Rolex Deepsea watches. 1967: Rolex Diving Watch Sea-dweller style wrist watch, oyster-perpetual type wrist watch was released to the world in 1967, its waterproof depth was up to 610 meters. To meet the needs of a professional deep-sea diver, the case is equipped with a helium-discharging valve, allowing helium of the gas mixture to be discharged during prolonged decompression in the high-pressure cabin to avoid damaging the watch, because the helium can damage many things in the deep sea.
I recommend this: https://kronoswatch.sc/, I have seen lots of Replica Rolex here. The models and quality of products on sale there are all good, I personally bought several series.
