The founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, is the prodigious innovating force behind the Rolex brand. Born in 1881, few people have passed on a more valuable legacy to the watch-making world.
Born in Kulmbach, Germany, early life for Hans was not easy. By twelve years old he was an orphan after his mother died when he was a boy and his father sadly died soon after. Looked after by his uncles, Hans received a superb education and shone in mathematics and languages. Such skills transferred well and gave him the confidence to take up his first job working for an international pearl exports company.
His first taste of watchmaking came in 1900 when he began working for the watch firm Cuno-Korten after moving to Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Here, he worked primarily as an English correspondent with the British Empire and the United States’ biggest markets for Swiss watches. However, he also spent a significant amount of time winding hundreds of watches. It was here that Wilsdorf’s love for the mechanics of watches was sparked which ultimately became his lifelong passion.
