Originally founded in London in 1905, what was to become the Rolex Watch Co. Ltd moved its headquarters to Geneva after WWI. Currently, three Rolex watches feature among the world’s ten most valuable – in particular, actor Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona currently holds the title of the most expensive wristwatch and the second most expensive watch ever sold at auction.
