When selecting a watch winder that is suitable for your Rolex watch things are made really quite simple as the majority of their current models fit within the standard winding specifications shared by the vast majority of all automatic watches on sale today.  If you want to learn some of the basics our guide to selecting a watch winder would be the perfect place to go.

A selection of some of our most popular winders that are suitable for the majority of Rolex Watches.

(Please remember to check your required TPD and Direction of Winding.  If you need any help please do not hesitate to contact us!)

The majority of Rolex watches require 650 TPD and need to be wound Bi-Directionally, here are a few of the most popular Rolex models and their winding specifications:

Please do not be concerned if a watch winder has slightly more TPD than is suggested for your watch.  There is protection built into each automatic watch that protects them against over winding … once the watch is fully wound then any extra turns per day generated by your watch winder would simply not be counted.

A Brief History of Rolex

Rolex SA, based in Geneva, Switzerland are the largest manufacturer of Swiss made certified chronometers and probably the most well know of all the luxury watch brands.

Rolex was originally founded as Wilsdorf and Davies (by Hans Wildorf and Alfred Davis) in 1905 in London, England.  The company registered the name Rolex as the brand of its watches in 1908 but it was in 1915 that the company became Rolex Watch Co. Ltd.  The company was moved to Geneva after World War 1 and Montres Rolex SA was registered in 1920 which became Rolex SA as we know it today.

Rolex were the first watchmakers to earn the chronometer certification for a wrist watch in 1910 and the first to release a watch waterproof to 100m in 1953, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner.

Rolex have produced some of the worlds most well known and loved models including the Daytona, Air-King, GMT Master, Submariner, Sea Dweller and Explorer to name but a few.

Rolex is a brand that is instantly recognisable due to the high-profile sponsorship they have been involved with over the years.  Official timekeeper of all four tennis Grand Slams, Golf’s US Open, PGA Tour and European Tour, 24 Hours of Daytona, Le Mans 24 Hours, Formula 1, International Showjumping and many more.

With such fine heritage your Rolex watch deserves a beautiful watch winder.
