Every Rolex tells a story…..
Over the years Rolex has received spontaneous messages of endorsement from many of its customers, delighted at the robustness and reliability of their watches. All mention the outstanding quality and longevity of Rolex watches, worn in conditions that are often just as extraordinary. Rolex published some of them.
TREASURE ON THE REEF
“In November 1988 my 12 year old Lady-Datejust was lost whilst I was boating offshore in the St Vincent Gulf. I thought my cherished watch was lost forever! With almost no hope, I notified Rolex Australia, knowing that it would be identified, should it by some miracle be found.
“In March I received a telephone call to inform me that my watch had been recovered. The watch had been washed onto a reef and had been found seven weeks after being lost – only a little worse for wear, but still working! I am overjoyed and have a tale to tell, which will be told over and over.
“I am sure you will be pleased to learn of yet another testimony to the good name of Rolex.”
M. Higgerson, South Australia.
