Rolex and the Arnold Palmer Cup
Through an unwavering commitment to the game of golf for more than 50 years, Rolex has developed one of the
broadest and longest-standing relationships between brand and sport. These strong ties date back to 1967 when
Rolex partnered with legendary golfer Arnold Palmer, making him the first official Rolex Golf Testimonee. The
charismatic American holds a special place in golf history thanks as much to his natural talent and successful playing
career as to his pioneering role in the sport. Since that pivotal bond began, Rolex has gone on to establish
partnerships at every level of the sport, including with the governing bodies responsible for advancing the sport and
with the finest players, from The Big Three to the New Guard who lead today’s rankings. The decision to partner with
the Arnold Palmer Cup was thus a natural progression for the Swiss watchmaker, and a tribute to Arnold Palmer’s
An unrivaled reputation for quality and expertise
Rolex is an integrated and independent Swiss watch manufacturer. Headquartered in Geneva, the brand is
recognized the world over for its expertise and the quality of its products – symbols of excellence, elegance, and
prestige. The movements of its Oyster Perpetual and Cellini watches are certified by COSC, then tested in-house for
their precision, performance and reliability. The Superlative Chronometer certification, symbolized by the green seal,
confirms that each watch has successfully undergone tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to
its own criteria. These are periodically validated by an independent external organization.
The word “Perpetual” is inscribed on every Rolex Oyster watch. But more than just a word on a dial, it is a philosophy
that embodies the company’s vision and values. Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of the company, instilled a notion of
perpetual excellence that would drive the company forward. This led Rolex to pioneer the development of the
wristwatch and numerous major watchmaking innovations, such as the Oyster, the first waterproof wristwatch,
launched in 1926, and the Perpetual rotor self-winding mechanism, invented in 1931. In the course of its history,
Rolex has registered over 500 patents. At its four sites in Switzerland, the brand designs, develops and produces the
majority of its watch components, from the casting of the gold alloys to the machining, crafting, assembly and finishing of the movement, case, dial and bracelet. Furthermore, the brand is actively involved in supporting the arts and culture, sport, and exploration, as well as those who are devising solutions to preserve the planet.
