Quick History - Rolex was founded by Hans Wilsdorf in 1905, only 24 at the time. Hans, and Alfred Davis, his brother-in-law, founded a company in London specializing in watch distribution. His idea was to build a watch that could be worn on the wrist that would look good but also be very reliable.  At first, Wilsdorf and Davis imported fine Swiss movements to England and placed them in cases made by locals. These early watches were sold to jewelers who branded the dials. It wasn't until 1915 that they registered the trademark "Rolex" and opened an office in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The earliest vintage Rolex watches usually have a hallmarked "W&D" (Wilsdorf and Davis) inside the caseback.
