A Rolex Harley Davidson watch could represent the merging of two companies that date back over a hundred years. One company is known for a recognizable status symbol you wear on your wrist, while the other company is known for the status symbol you ride. Combine the two, and you’d end up with the ultimate in cool and elite timekeeping. Rolex is a Swiss brand, and Harley Davidson is distinctly American. You can find a Rolex Harley Davidson watch for sale online at various stores and on eBay. Unfortunately, these watches are cheap replicas that aren’t associated with either a Rolex or Harley Davidson.
Rolex and Harley Davidson History
Rolex watches have a history that goes back to 1905 London, as a company known as Wilsdorf and Davis, founded by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis, his brother-in-law. The company imported Swiss parts and put them in quality watch cases which would then be sold to local jewelers who branded the watches as their own. It wasn’t until 1908 that the Rolex trademark was used, and it wasn’t used as a company name until 1915. Just a year before that, Rolex was lauded for its precision in time keeping, a precision that set it apart from other watches of the day. That quality and craftsmanship made Rolex watches world-famous and one of the most recognizable brands all these years later.
William Harley and Arthur Davidson put their first motorcycle on the market in 1903, after having built it in a wooden shed that measure only 10 x 15 feet. From humble beginnings, the Harley Davidson Company became a world-class manufacturer of motorcycles and motorcycle parts, and another one of the most recognizable brands in the world.

A quick search online will lead you to all kinds of Rolex Harley Davidson watches, all of them completely fake. Not only can you discover that it’s fake by contacting Rolex and asking, but also by a quick glance at the price tag. You can find these watches for about $150 or so. That should raise alarm bells in anyone’s mind, because the least expensive Rolex brand watch you could buy still costs over $3000.
If you’re tempted to buy a Rolex Harley Davidson watch, put your money away. You can get a good quality, official Bulova Harley Davidson watch from the only company who owns the license to create watches with the Harley Davidson brand. They offer different varieties for you to choose from, but you can still get an official watch for less than one of the replicas. The basic Bulova Harley watch can cost as little as $75.
If there were actually a Rolex Harley Davidson watch, though, it would represent the ultimate in cool status symbols. But for now, you’ll have to save thousands of dollars by buying a Bulova.
