Rolex is a well-known brand in tennis. The company is a sponsor at all four grand slams and several popular ATP tournaments.
Rolex was originally founded in London by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf and Davis. The company changed its name to Rolex in 1908. After World War I, the company moved its operations to Geneva, Switzerland due to unfavorable business conditions in the UK.
Since 1960, the company has been owned by Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, a private family trust. The company has more than $5 billion in revenue.
