Rolex Founder...Hans Wilsdorf...



...Rolex Founder...


Hans Wilsdorf

April 30, 1946

This photo of Rolex Founder, Hans Wilsdorf was taken 73 years ago on April 30, 1946 in Geneva, Switzerland, when Hans was 65 years old and it was discovered by Philip. The thing that is so strikingly unusual about this image is it is the very first image I have seen of Hans Wilsdorf out in nature wearing sports clothes. In other words, he is wearing a sweater and ascot, as apposed to his normal attire of a suit with a necktie.
