CHRISTIAN FROST & JENS HØY: DEN STORE BOG OM ROLEX
Despite the fact, that we live in a world of ever more advanced technology, the interest and demand for the traditional mechanical wristwatch is growing ever stronger. This book is an introduction to the world of Rolex, without a doubt the most iconic Swiss watch of all, with its rich history and countless anecdotes.
The legend of Rolex was forged during countless explorations. Sir Edmund Hillary wore a Rolex when he stood on the world’s highest mountaintop, after conquering Mount Everest. Just as French explorer, Jacques Piccard brought a Rolex with him to the depth of the Mariana Trench. And famously, the British officers, planning what came to be known as The Great Escape, used a Rolex chronograph to time the German guards in the Stalag II prison camp during World War II.
The books is the perfect introduction, for anyone with an interest in Rolex, and will take you through all the current and vintage models such as Submariner, GMT-Master, Datejust and Daytona, revealing their distinctive features and history, including the vintage models and special editions.
There is an entire chapter on how to avoid the many fake watches on the market. In a unique guide the book provides you with the knowledge to spot even the best fakes, known as ‘Frankenstein’s’ by the experts. We also take at look at why a Rolex is an excellent investment right now, and how to select the best of both new and vintage models.
The Big Book about Rolex is a fascinating journey through the history of and the passion for the mechanical watch, and last but not least, it provides any man with a bulletproof argument, as to why he should be allowed the joy of owning a Rolex.
