Since all time it has been investigated to 'catch' time, but it is not until the twelfth century when the first mechanical watch appears. Since then, a whole world of ingenuity available to the human being until we reach the very identifying and familiar sound of the 'ticking' of our wrist; the sound of the mechanism that measures time.
Many are the clocks that make 'tic tac', although the facts under the watchful and expert hand of a watchmaker craftsman - as are the Rolex - dominate the measurement of time with incredible precision.
A faculty that is born from the dream of a young German watchmaker, Hans Wilsdorf, who at 24 years founded in 1905 a company specializing in the distribution of watches, and where he imagined one of wristbands that enjoyed that characteristic, until then, unusual. The search for that chronometric accuracy is successful, and in 1910 Rolex receives the first Swiss Official Chronometric Certificate, which the body responsible for the control of the movement of watches, located in Bern (Switzerland), gives a wristwatch. In 1914 the certificate of high precision would arrive, a quality that would already be intrinsically linked to the brand.
The test will be played by partners of Real Golf La Manga Club and several of the champions of the Regional Absolute.
Alejandro Olivares, the grandson of José Olivares and Manolita Cano, the founders of a jewelry workshop in Murcia in the 50s, is passionate about watchmaking. Today and together with his sister Isabel he runs the family business started by his grandparents and maintained by his father (Pedro Luis Olivares). Alejandro Olivares wears a Rolex on his wrist; «Its brightness, its color, its song, the click of its crown, how its needles move ..., they are all a cluster of sensations that alert your senses; the ear, the sight, the touch ... everything, and they do it, in a very pleasant way ». Olivares talks about the beauty and qualities of this beautiful chronometer, not as an object of value, which is, "but as an emotional object" that usually tells a story. The Rolex itself is dotted with transcendental moments. Those linked to golf and, in the field 'amateur', are those that Pedro Luis Olivares Jeweler intends to return to make available to the players of the Region, retaking the prestigious Rolex Trophy. He has already put a date: next June 14, in La Manga Club (LMC) and under the name of Rolex Tournament - Pedro Luis Olivares Jeweler.
Rolex and the link with sport.
Since its inception, the Rolex brand -Wilsdorf combined five letters that form a short word that could be remembered in any language- has not stopped being linked to great deeds or sporting events; either in the English Channel crossing (1927) of the English swimmer Gleitze, where her hermeticism was put to the test, or in the first mission that flew over Everest, in 1933. Aviation, motorsport, mountaineering, scientific exploration .. and sports events, which in the case of golf link Rolex with renowned professionals and first class events: Masters of Augusta, US Open, , Rolex Series..., Ryder Cup or Solheim Cup.
