The Swiss watch manufacturer Rolex SA has its main seat in Geneva with a large manufactory in Biel/Bienne. Hans Wilsdorf founded the company in 1905 in London when he began importing Swiss watches to London and writing the company's name "Rolex" on the clock dial. He registered the brand in 1908 and focused on wristwatches that were not considered to be reliable and have a great future back then. But already in 1926, Rolex was able to present the first water-resistant watch, the Oyster, marking the beginning of the company's worldwide success.
