Four Days Inside the Rolex Factory

Benjamin Clymer from watch blog Hondinkee:

In this special HODINKEE feature of Inside The Manufacture, I will recount a four day experience that completely changed my perspective on the world’s most important watch maker – the time that I got to spend inside all four of Rolex’s actual production facilities in Switzerland.

This is a fantastically-written piece, and the pictures. Oh the pictures! So good.

It strikes me that Apple’s getting into a market where their obsession with detail-oriented design is the norm, not the exception. Also, they’re executing this attention to detail at scale; building millions of watches where traditional hand-crafted watches are made in much lower quantities, for much higher prices.

Reckoner had its humble beginnings way back in June of 2013.

Founded by James Croft, along with Peter Wells and Anthony Agius they created what would go on to become one of Australia’s most highly regarded and award winning independent tech blogs.

With its uniquely Australian voice Reckoner is committed to offering a “no-holds-barred” approach to its writing. Beholden to no one but its audience. Reckoner’s goal is to remain completely transparent and honour the trust it’s built with its faithful readership.
