Rolex Wall Clock?

Has Rolex made any wall clocks? I know they have some at airports but are those made with Rolex movements? Any info on Rolex wall clocks will help...

They are never for sale, and I have seen some plastic ones on the bay.. but not sure about authenticity since they do not display the Rolex aura to me.....
I do know the vintage clocks (most of them wood) were given to sales people (only sometimes) once they reached 10 years working at the Authorized Dealer... they are pretty rare and do not come cheap for sure.. (most of the ones I have seen are not for sale and owned from private collectors, or sales people)

From what I know Rolex are watchmakers, and not clockmakers.

I believe all the wall clocks made officially (with Rolex authorisation) are done so by a third party. These are legally made clocks and they appear in authorised dealers and airports and other similar places. They can come up for sale occasionally but are usually not available for purchase.

Then there are those who have no official authoritsation from Rolex and make wall clocks which are a breach of the Rolex Trade Mark.

Here is a 1970s example of a rare Rolex clock....a collector send me this image some time ago....she used to work for an AD and received this as a 10 year gift...she was not selling but was kind to take the picture and send it to me...
As Stevo said... be careful of the plastic imitations..

This is like the one my watchmaker owns. He worked at the Dallas RSC for 14 years and got it on his 10th anniversary there.

Hi
I have a Rolex wall clock in my office.
It looks smart and to be honest if I didn't have the Rolex clock it would only be replaced with a cheaper alternative.
The clock I have has all the holograms, bells and whistles but to be honest I would say it was a Fake. I bought it from the usual online Flea Bay.
Alot of these clocks originate from Canada, I had an Omega one also, but again its Fake.
I dont believe these have been commissioned on behalf of Rolex or Omesdfsdf

I think you need some wood-paneled walls, orange carpet and large glass grapes on your Formica end tables to go with that clock!

Looks like the clock would have been at home on the set of "That 70's Show" or
The Brady Bunch"

I have a Rolex wall clock that belongs to a friend and was given it as a gift when he was working fo the Jaguar f1 team. It has a plate to the reverse which reads:
Montres Rolex S. A.
Pub-Ext. Geneve

It runs on 5 soldered in inorganoic lithium batteries.
It is quite heavy and measures 330cm across with a depth of 70cm. It is coloured silver and gold.
Would love to know more about it if anyone can help. Would of put photo up but couldnt see an option to do so.

I have a clock like this one that I am thinking about selling. Mine is all wood with a Tochigi Tokei movement. Just wondering if anyone would have an idea of what it might be worth.

rolex does not make wall clocks, but they do license another company to make some, they are NOT in any style like the seadweller one shown above, not all customers are WIS. You can count on one thing with Rolex clear branding. The clocks are very plain so the lay person can recoginise that the shop is an AD walking past. They are not for sale to customers only AD. AD can also simply by a set of letters, coronet and markers and mount it on the wall, these are about a metre in size (very large.) Below are real rolex wall clocks. I added one stand alone clock also, these are seen in some towns in europe and also in the USA at golf courses that hold rolex sponsored events.
