MARCONI 1911 Hans Wilsdorf's vision to register the Marconi name in January 1911- before he officially patented the Rolex name on the 15 November 1915 - was the a gem of Rolex marketing brilliance. In 1901 Gugliemo Marconi successfully demonstrated the first use of radio waves as a means of communication. In 1909, Marconi was awarded the Nobel prize for physics and his business had become a great commercial success. Radio communication was " state of art technology" and this was very exciting to the general public. Hans Wilsdorf believed that by registering the name MARCONI for Rolex watches he would immediately associate his ground breaking watch technology and engineering with the ground braking innovation and progress of of MARCONI' radio Waves. The Rolex Marconi was thus born and production took off in the 1920's. MARCONI LINE 1920 Only the very best movements that Rolex could manufacture were utilized for the Marconi line. Rolex did not place the Marconi name on standard Rolex models but actually on the most expensive lines; lines that were limited production models for customers whom price mattered little and quite literally wanted the best of the best. The expense necessary to acquire a MARCONI reflected the enormous amount of work and detail that went into each one. The watch is in wonderful condition for its age and is fully working, original strap has been replaced since the 1920's.
