Esquire goes inside Rolex HQ

Post by koimaster » November 2nd 2020, 9:59pm

In Roald Dahl’s classic 1964 book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the world is whipped up into a reckless spending frenzy as people of all creeds search for a golden ticket hidden inside chocolate bars. The golden ticket would guarantee them a genuine money-can’t-buy experience: access to Willy Wonka’s factory.

In Dahl’s universe, Wonka produces the finest chocolates. They are the industry leader, bearing a name that stands as a hallmark of quality – desired by every sweet-toothed man, woman and child around the world.

Despite the company’s success, the factory is shrouded in mystery with access forbidden to outsiders. What goes on behind the grand iron gates is best described by Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka in the 1971 film adaptation as “the making of music, and the dreaming of dreams.”

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

They didn't allow photos? Those appear to be Rolex promo photos.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

Rolex is awesome- likely in the top 10 for quality mass produced products on earth.
Easily

I'd say top 3.

quality mass produced products

So nothing special about the brand then.

More than special to me and likely the most recognizable watch brand on the planet.

"Unique" isn't always good or useful.

I didn't say they're not special, but they are what they are and not as they are perceived by many to be handmade or a bespoke product ala Daniels et al.

I have inherited two that I like quite a bit, by golly.
