100 Superlative Rolex Watches - John Goldberger
Rolex was established in 1908, a century ago, so one hundred years have passed from that day to the publication of this volume in which the author, John Goldberger, illustrates what he considers to be the 100 most beautiful examples ever produced. One hundred years of life, and one hundred examples, traced back through time thanks to painstaking research, with the collaboration of some of the most renowed collectors in the world, and photographed to show the characteristics of the movement, case and dial of each example in the best possible way. The top one hundred, we could say, also to narrow down the field of research, which would otherwise have been incredibly vast, to grasp the essence of a brand that has probably contributed more than any other to the development of the wristwatch. Giampiero Negretti Over 700 colour illustrations and 400 descriptions provide the collector and watch enthusiast with invaluable information on reference numbers, watchcases, faces, movements, related calibres and the year of production of each watch.
