The Swiss watchmaking company Rolex was founded in 1908 by Hans Wilsdorf. As a young man, he stepped into the world of the Swiss watchmaking, when the world was completely ruled by pocket watches. Wilsdorf was sure that the future was for  wrist watches. And although they weren't too precise that time,he foresaw that the watches could be can not only stylish, but also reliable. In order to convince his customers of the reliability of his innovative watches, Wilsdorf started to equip them with the small and very precise Swiss movements. The name Rolex was easily pronounced in all European languages and was short enough to fit the dial. The watchmakers of Rolex focused on the quality of the Rolex watch movements. Unrelieved struggle for the chronometric precise was soon crowned with success: in 1910, the  Rolex watches became the first wrist watches, which received the official certificate from the Official Watch Rating Centre in Bienne. Four years later, Kew Observatory in Great Britain awarded the Rolex wristwatches a class “A” precision. Since that time, Rolex watches always associated with precision.
 A major step forward was taken with the creation in 1926 the world's first dustproof and waterproof watches. Their movement was protected with the hermetic case, like a shell, that's why the watches got the name “Oyster”.
