At Rolex, there's a strict rule of no photos. Nobody knows for sure how many watches of each model are produced. But there are some cool facts that we do know Rolex has its own scientific laboratory they also have a research and development department.

To be precise Rolex has several perfectly equipped professional laboratories in different locations. In these labs, specialists research how to make new watches and how to make their manufacturing process more efficient.

 For its watches, Rolex uses steel that is particularly difficult to machine. This steel is also more
 expensive than most other types though it's undoubtedly better looking.

No other watch manufacturer uses this kind of steel. Their material is more corrosion and rust resistant and it's also harder than other types of steel.

Rolex has its own foundry on the premises, an in-house foundry owned by Rolex makes its own gold. Which is later used for manufacturing watches. Rolex has several steel suppliers but platinum and
gold are made on the premises.

This makes Rolex the only watch producer that produces its own gold in its own foundry. Rolex watches are assembled by hand since Rolex is pretty secretive about the topic of watch production.

It's a common misconception that their watches are built by machines. There's some element of truth in this statement as machines are used at some stages of the process.

But there's more to it rolex has some of the finest and most sophisticated watchmaking machinery in the world. It's used for filing cataloging and incredibly delicate processes, at the same time most
of the machines are operated by people.

On top of that people assemble everything from bracelets to movements. Rolex can put Fort Knox to shame. It shouldn't surprise you that Rolex is crazy about security.

around. So, if you decide to try and gain entry be prepared for numerous James Bond style safety checks. You'll find a small army of gemologist set Rolex.

Rolex has high standards for the materials that are used for manufacturing their watches. The same goes for the precious stones they use, rubies diamonds and emeralds adorn rolex watches. That's why
there's a whole Gemological department that buys tests and sets precious stones and Rolex watches.

over the years only two turned out to be fake. They need one year to produce one Rolex watch.

 Yes, you heard us correctly. To produce one single watch Rolex needs a whopping 365 days. The reason for such a long production time is the fact that almost all of the parts are made from materials prepared in-house.

Since the brand produces about 1 million watches a year you can imagine how efficient this process must be. When you get to know such details you stop wondering why you have to pay a fortune
for a seemingly simple watch.
