Written for Buyers by Collectors of vintage Rolex

This is not a coffee-table book or a biography of Hans Wilsdorf. It is not a piece of corporate marketing or public relations. It does highlight historical timelines, events, releases and key figures of interest. It does have pictures comparing condition of examples you’ll actually find in the market place. It does explain why you need to know this data, and how to use it to avoid getting ripped-off.

  • It introduces language and terminology without perpetuating the jargon.

  • It highlights risks and challenges without hysteria and fear mongering.

  • It examines the collectors psyche and prejudices, and provides some balancing perspective.

  • It explains how to minimize purchase risks
