WEMPE Rolex

Rolex & Wempe

The time-honored Rolex and Wempe companies have been cooperating since the early 1950s in an unusually close and successful partnership.

Thanks to its tremendous capacity for technological innovation, Rolex is the epitome of highly precise yet robust timepieces.

Ever since it was founded, this Swiss manufacture has produced pioneering developments that continue to set new standards for the watchmaking industry. These developments include the water-resistant Oyster case, the first date display in a window on the dial, the introduction of a self-winding movement, the perpetual rotor, and the use of high-tech materials in the structure of watch movements. In London in the early 1950s, Hellmut Wempe discovered the watches made by the founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, which had previously been barely known in Germany. He realized the tremendous potential of the brand, and as the first Rolex license holder he made a crucial contribution to its establishment on the German market.
