An obsession with quality and perfection
Rolex has its own research and development department. For example, Rolex's new state-of-the-art premises in Bienne, with a surface area covering more than 13 football fields and a staff of more 2,000 employees, is equipped with a pioneering automated stocking and retrieval system capable of selecting the components needed for each stage of the watch assembly, which are then transported on trays to workplaces in record time; Every single Rolex watch is given a huge amount of hands-on attention. Actual people work on every Rolex that is made, with the ultimate goal of ensuring that every Rolex is checked, checked again and then re-checked to ensure quality; Over the years, Rolex has complete control over the manufacturing of cases, movements, dials and bracelets. And Rolex even makes its own gold, known as Everose, in the Rolex foundry.
