Rolex Founder: Hans Wilsdorf Birthday Today...

Happy Birthday: Han's Wilsdorf
Founder of Rolex in 1908

Hans Wilsdorf was the founder of Rolex and he was born 128 years ago, on March 22, 1881 in Kulmbach, Bavaria, which is part of Germany today. Han's Wilsdorf founded Rolex 101 years ago in 1908.

If it was not for Hans Wilsdorf's talent, genius, creativity, tenacity, brilliance, insight and vision, there would be no Rolex today; so on behalf of Jake's Rolex Watch Blog and on the eve of Basel week let's all take a moment to thank Hans Wilsdorf for leaving his amazing legacy for us all to enjoy and celebrate!!! It is indeed a happy birthday for Hans Wilsdorf.
