Rolex has a dedicated foundry to develop high quality 18ct gold alloy. Different types of 18ct gold can be extracted by mixing different amounts of silver, copper, platinum or palladium: gold, pink gold or white gold. All raw materials are made of highly pure metal. Before the gold is formed, it must be carefully tested by the advanced equipment in the self-operated laboratory, and each process is meticulous. Since the beginning of the production, the pursuit of perfection is the consistent insistence of Rolex.
