Relojes Rolex Originales

The quality of the Original Rolex Watches is indisputable, not in vain they have been participants of great feats throughout its history.

They are the best company to climb a mountain, to dive to the bottom of the sea, to beat speed records or to accompany the protagonists of action movies.

The big question is, what elevates this brand to such a high level of excellence? Let’s find out!

Original Rolex watches and the extreme tests to which they are subjected.

To guarantee the quality of Original Rolex Watches , they have to undergo countless tests to verify the resistance and functionality of each of their components.

Tests to Ensure Perfect Closure.

If there is one component that is constantly manipulated, it is “the clasp of your watch”, since it is in charge of securing the bracelet.

They must be designed to prevent accidental opening while still allowing for a snug fit on the wrist.

Although Rolex has different clasps, we must highlight the Oysterlock, this is the clasp used in most professional watches such as the Rolex Explorer, Rolex Submariner, Rolex Cosmograph Daytona and others.

To be sure to withstand accidental bumps and knocks, the clasp of the Original Rolex Watches has to withstand 26 different types of drops as part of the tests performed.

They are also submerged in chlorine and salt water tanks with sand, where the opening is tested countless times to ensure functionality even under the most adverse conditions.

The hard knocks received by original Rolex watches.

There are 20 drop tests that a watch of this brand has to pass before being launched on the market.

One of the most difficult tests is called “bélier”, which in French means ram. In this test, the watch is subjected to an impact equivalent to 5000 G.

This represents an impact 100 times greater than simulating an automobile accident, to pass the test the watch must be unharmed and remain operational.

Rolex Deepsea and the Hermeticity Test.

When Tiger Woods, seized the Masters to complete an elite comeback he wore a Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea D-Blue on his wrist, a totally iconic moment.

Rolex, in order to guarantee the water resistance of this famous diving watch that withstands an extreme depth of 3900 meters, has to put it through very strict tests.

For this purpose, it uses a high-performance tank specially designed for this purpose, a stainless steel hyperbaric tank made from a single piece.

This reproduces the same pressure that the watch would be subjected to if it were immersed at 4875 meters below sea level, i.e., the conditions for which it was designed are exceeded by 25%.

The Great Green Seal of the Original Rolex Watches.

Have you noticed a green seal accompanying his Rolex?This one is not there by mere chance and has a great reason for its presence.

The green seal symbolizes its Superlative Chronometer status, an exclusive certification guaranteeing that the watch successfully passed a series of final controls.

This control is performed by Rolex in its own laboratories and following the strict criteria of the brand as a complement to the official COSC certification of its movement.

These are tests related to chronometric accuracy after assembly, water-resistance, automatic winding and autonomy.

The green seal comes with a five-year warranty!

From the prototype to your wrist.

Whoever buys a new Rolex watch may think that its history begins there, but nothing could be further from the truth.

The quality verification process starts from the design stage, from that moment a list of mishaps that your watch could face is made.

This is established according to the intended use of the product, and so a series of tests are programmed to reproduce the actual conditions of use.

Among the tests of resistance to the different blows, the so-called “ordinary” blows are evaluated, which are those derived from common use, such as when clapping hands or slapping hands, for example.

But it also emulates the “accidental” shocks that reproduce clock falls in the most hostile scenarios.

Aging tests.

Aging tests are used to analyze the behavior of non-mechanical and moving parts.

  • The resistance of the spheres to UV rays is measured to ensure that the colors will remain stable over the years.
  • The evolution of the wear and tear of the points of union between the elements such as the case with the bracelet, between the links, etc., is analyzed.
  • Each of the mechanical systems that make up the movement are passed through devices that reproduce the adjustment operations and conditions of use.
  • The chronometric performance, the duration of the power reserve and the ability to wind its automatic module are verified.
