Inaugurated in 1905 by Hans Wildorf in London, Rolex quickly established itself as one of the leading watchmakers in the world. Rolex was awarded the first offical chronograph certificate for a wristwatch in 1910, and patented their famous Oyster model wristwatch in 1926. The company's most important technical innovation is arguably the creation of the Perpetual Rotor in 1931, which ensures the almost unparalleled accuracy of Rolex's self-winding perpetual movements. Production of the Submariner, Daytona, Datejust and Yachtmaster wristwatches followed during the second half of the twentieth century, creating a tradition of precision and quality.
