A Founder and Director

Hans Wilsdorf, the founder and director of Rolex, was a strong proponent of wristwatches since the turn of the century. While others scoffed at them, Wilsdorf continued to experiment with their accuracy and reliability. Thus, some would argue that he did more for their advancement than anyone in history. In fact, he is even credited with sending the first wristwatches to the Neuchatel Observatory ( Switzerland ), for accuracy testing. They all passed the rigorous battery of tests, which encouraged Wilsdorf to push them even further.
