For the past few decades, Rolex watches have been considered the penultimate when it comes to watches. They are said to be sleeker in design, more professional looking, better functioning and longer lasting than any other watch on the market. Claims have been also been made in regards to the craftsmanship and internal design of Rolex watches; they are meant to not only last long, but continue working long after other watches have stopped. But is any of this true? How good are Rolex watches, really? Read on to find out the truth.
The Longest Lasting Watches or Early Death Watches?
So do the Rolex watches really last so long? Well, it all depends on how well you treat your watch. If you are one of those people who tend to find that their wrists hit every available surface without them really trying to do it, well, your Rolex will be a nice thousand dollar bracelet. Rolex watches may be longer lasting than, say, the regular brand watches that you see at your local K Mart or Target, but they are by no means indestructible. In fact, the steep price and their ability to, quite easily due to the fine and fragile components, break, make them more of a risk than other watches on the market. But this should not deter you at all if you are a person who wears your watch in a professional manner, not a destructive one.
How Rolex Holds Up to Time
The problem with Rolex watches is that there has yet to be a digital Rolex made. Some may be rolling their eyes at this, but it makes Daylight Saving Time a pain. Digital clocks go forward and digital clocks go back via satellite, for the more expensive brands. This allows you to make sure that you are always, totally, on time. However, if you want to keep up with Daylight Saving Time with your Rolex watch, then you are going to have to remember to change your watch forward or backward manually. This can be a pain to remember; after all, is not the point of a watch in the first place to help you remember things, and keep track of them? As far as time is considered, the Rolex fairs just about as well as any other fancy and expensive watch does; they manually tune beautifully, but the problem is, that is literally your only choice to keep up with the time.
