"Swiss only"

The "Swiss only" dials were produced between the years 1998 and 1999. They mark the transition between the until then produced tritium dials and the modern super Luminova dials. The luminous material used in the "Swiss only" dials was called Luminova. Due to the short production time and the interesting history as a transitional model, Rolex models with the "Swiss only" dial are very special watches in the Rolex collection and future collectors' items.

Brandstory

Rolex

Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex is now the world's best-selling watch manufacturer. At a time when wristwatches were only worn by women as jewellery, Rolex established the history of the men's wristwatch by succeeding in building a wristwatch robust enough for everyday use. Today, Rolex is still the industry leader in the field of durable everyday watches and founded the concept of the Toolwatch. From the depths of the oceans to the heights of aviation, Rolex's professional models are valued by professionals and today enjoy exceptionally high collector's values.

Thinking of spring today

In the middle of last week, the time had come. A soft chirping sound made me open the windows, which had been kept closed for most of the past months, and there it was: spring. At least a very first, even delicate hint of it. The first birds singing, temperatures that no longer seemed so wintry. One glance at the clock and it was clear: a change was needed for the new season.
