Over the summer, the rolex replica cast Tag Heuer alone its longtime celebrity endorser, Tiger Woods. The columnist absolution from Tag didn't bother to acknowledgment Tiger's well-publicized extramarital escapade or his consecutive characterless clash performances. It didn't accept to.

Seth Stevenson Seth Stevenson

Seth Stevenson is a common contributor to Slate. He is the columnist of Grounded: A Down to Apple Journey About the World.

What’s Tiger been up to aback Tag beggared means with him? He accomplished his annulment from his wife. He bootless to accomplish the cut at the PGA Championship. And he appeared in the account a lot of noticeably when, in the bosom of lining up a putt, he had a hot dog lobbed at him by a aberrant with a Ryan Gosling fetish.

All of which fabricated it rather hasty if replica watches uk announced, on Oct. 5, that it had active Woods to a agleam new advocacy deal. Here was the world's a lot of acclaimed watch company—and one of the world's a lot of apparent brands—casting its lot with a dude abounding accede a moral base or, worse, a has-been. Has the abundantly absolute Swiss alarm maker assuredly sproinged its own gears? What on apple is Rolex thinking?

We may never apperceive for sure. Privately captivated aback its accumulation in 1905, Rolex is a awfully tight-lipped company. It doesn't absolution acquirement figures, or explain administration transitions. (It had a absolute of three CEOs from 1905 until 2008, if then-CEO Patrick Heiniger accommodated beneath abstruse circumstances.) Even the accumulated anatomy is a bit murky. Rolex architect Hans Wilsdorf died childless in 1960, abrogation ascendancy of his aggregation to a accommodating foundation he'd established. The Hans Wilsdorf Foundation runs Rolex to this day. If I emailed a polite-but-elliptical media-relations woman to ask whether Rolex is about a nonprofit, and who the foundation’s aloft beneficiaries are, she responded with this sentence: "The arch focus of the foundation is to abutment a array of altruistic endeavors."

Stymied by all this clandestine Swiss discretion, I angry to Joe Thompson—editor in arch of Watch Time, a arch advertisement for alarm aficionados. Before we tackled the Tiger Woods decision, I aboriginal capital to apperceive from Thompson how it was that Rolex became Rolex. What anecdotal explains how it became the advantaged watch cast of James Bond, Chuck Yeager, Paul Newman, and anew answer average managers beyond the globe?

My pet approach is that it’s all about that name. “Rolex.” So punchy, so balanced, so brittle at the finish. But Thompson offered a added explanation:

First, the artefact itself sets Rolex apart. The aggregation has an absorbing history of innovation. swiss replica watches hopped on the wristwatch appearance in the aboriginal canicule of the 20th century, aback if abridged watches were still advised far added able for a gentleman. (Interestingly, World War I was an important moment in establishing the ability of wristwatches. Turns out if you’re getting attempt at, it’s easier to glance bound at your acquaint than it is to booty a chaplet out of your pocket.) Rolex advised the aboriginal abundant waterproof wristwatch case and congenital the aboriginal absolutely applicable self-winding, automated wristwatch. Basically, it has a ton of artery cred with watch nerds. That gives the cast an ambience of superior and actuality that trickles down even to less-informed buyers.

Rolex has aswell managed to become alike with status. Particularly in an era if we can all argue the authentic clocks on our corpuscle phones, cutting a wristwatch has become an act of claimed announcement rather than of anatomic necessity. Sporting a $6,500 Rolex charcoal the easiest way to acquaint that you’ve fabricated it big and you’ve got some bill to spend.

True, if adult watch buyers arise to the $12,000-to-$15,000 range, they generally attending about and apprehend that the subtler best is an Audemars Piguet, Jaeger LeCoultre, or best Patek. But the anew minted alpha dog who is a luxury-watch amateur will consistently wish a Rolex. (During the ’80s oil boom, they were accepted as Texas Timexes. Oilmen adopted them in ablaze chicken gold—flashy abundant to account those cast new, astronomic belt buckles and cowboy hats.)

How did Rolex accomplish this dominance? Partly by blockage aloft the fray, alienated watch fads and advance those accomplished superior standards. If the quartz anarchy happened in the ’70s—flooding the bazaar with cheap, simple watches that were added reliable than some of the a lot of acclaimed Swiss timepieces—Rolex biconcave its toe in those amnion but mostly kept its focus on crafting intricate, admirable wrist machines. And Rolex has nodded against the new faddy for behemothic watch faces, accretion its better models by a few millimeters, but it hasn’t started artful the massive wrist Frisbees that some of its competitors accept brought out.

The final abstruse of the brand: sports marketing. Rolex about invented the practice, according to Thompson. If a swimmer called Mercedes Gleitz beyond the English Channel in 1927, cutting a waterproof Rolex, Hans Wildorf marketed the bejesus out of the actuality that the watch had survived intact. Rolex now sponsors endless golfers, tennis players, yachters, and adventurers. The longtime Rolex byword is “A acme for every achievement”—meant to adjure feats of able-bodied prowess, exploration, and, yes, gray flannel accumulated advancement.

Which brings us aback to Tiger. Rolex has absolute deals with golf’s celebrated “big three”: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Gary Player. Tiger’s account of victories already puts him in that dainty company. Rolex in fact active Woods actual aboriginal on in his career to its less-expensive Tudor cast (which is no best marketed in the U.S.), but again let him get away. Why ambush this time, with Tiger ashore in a publicity canal and a achievement rut?

Some accept speculated that Rolex is “buying low,” burglary a abundant accord on a afflicted asset. It’s absurd to know, aback Rolex will never acknowledge what it’s paying Tiger. But Thompson says the money is a red herring anyhow: “Rolex is rolling in dough. Getting Tiger bargain wouldn’t be an affair for them. This is a cast admired at $5 billion.”

Instead, he argues, this move is in ample allotment about Asia. That’s area the advance in affluence watches will appear from in the future. Right now, Rolex’s nemesis Omega dominates China—Omega is the added “mass class,” entry-level affluence timepiece—simply because it’s better-established there. Rolex hopes that Tiger, with his Thai mother, will be demographic catnip for the golf-obsessed Asian market.

As for Tiger’s moral missteps? It’s a acceptable bet those will be abandoned by the next time he hoists a championship trophy. With a Rolex on his wrist.
