Rolex is proud to support TEDxCERN
As a Swiss watch industry leader dedicated to the art and science of creating precision timepieces, Rolex is proud to support TEDxCERN. From our earliest days, we have been known as a technologically-driven brand recognized worldwide for our superior engineering and inventive solutions to watchmaking. This legacy of enterprise and innovation has led to a series of milestones, not least of which is the world’s first waterproof wristwatch, the iconic Rolex Oyster chronometer, and the invention of the Perpetual rotor self-winding mechanism.
Our support of TEDxCERN is one of our commitments to science and innovation, as well as a continuation of our long-standing collaboration with CERN. In the 1950s, CERN’s scientists were among the first to confirm that the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss could resist magnetic interference up to 1,000 gauss.
More recently, in July 2010, CERN opened the “Universe of Particles”, a permanent exhibition sponsored by Rolex and housed in the Globe of Science and Innovation. Using cutting-edge digital technology and interactive displays, the exhibition explores all aspects of particle science.
TEDxCERN’s values of Research, Education, Innovation and Technology mirror our own.
