A truly integrated and independent manufacturing company, Rolex designs, develops and produces all the essential components of its watches in-house. Rolex is also actively involved in supporting the arts, sports, exploration, the spirit of enterprise, and the environment through a broad palette of sponsoring activities as well as philanthropic programmes.
