While no one can definitely say what Rolex means or where the brand name began, any erudite across the globe knows what these luxury timepieces mean. Rolex watches are symbols of power. Rolex watches have accompanied extraordinary human beings in dangerous, death defying and dazzling feats.
The luxury timepieces were hallmarks of triumph for Mercedes Gleitze as she swam for ten hours in penetrating icy waters across the English Channel. When pioneers hiked Mt. Everest’s 29,035 ft. summit, Rolex watches were there. Pioneers have not only worn Rolex watches, the luxury timepieces have made strides in haute Horlogère and revolutionized cultural practices and ideologies. When the young Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of what would become Rolex, began in 1905, he was not satisfied with the watches of his time. Even though pocket watches were the norm for Wilsdorf’s peers, Wilsdorf envisioned that wristwatches could replace the antiquated pocket watches.
At Hilltop Pawn we carry a selection of pre-owned Rolex watches as the norm. Our Gold-Smith not only can handle all your Jewelry Repair needs but can adjust Rolex bands as well.
