How Did the Word Rolex Originate?

The history of Rolex replica is closely associated with the visionary spirit of Hans Wilsdorf, its founder. In 1905, Hans Wilsdorf founded a company in London to specialise in the distribution of timepieces at the age of 24. He began to dream of a watch worn on the wrist. Wildorf Hans 1908Hans Wilsdorf wanted his UK Swiss Rolex copy watches to have a name that was short, easy to say and remember in any language, and which looked good on watch movements and dials. He said, “I tried combining the letters of the alphabet in every possible way. This gave me some hundred names, but none of them felt quite right. One morning, while riding on the upper deck of a horse-drawn omnibus along Cheapside in the City of London, a genie whispered ‘Rolex’ in my ear.” Then, the well-known word came out.
