Alles über die Welt der Luxus-Armbanduhren

Die Rückkehr des Jubilé

Wohl kein anderer Uhrenhersteller hat es geschafft, am Design seiner Uhrenarmbänder so lange nahezu unverändert festzuhalten, wie Rolex. Das Oysterband ist seit über acht Jahrzehnten der Klassiker schlechthin. Oft kopiert und nie erreicht, das bekannteste Erkennungsmerkmal einer Rolex überhaupt.
