A must for watch collectors and connoisseurs and anyone who wants to become one.

Rolex, there is not the slightest doubt, is a chronometric legend. The company was founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf.
The Bavarian-born inventor can justifiably be considered an innovation-conscious marketing genius. Watch lovers have him to thank for numerous outstanding models and technical achievements, such as the first officially certified wristwatches, the waterproof Oyster case, the Datejust or sporty items like the more than 50-year-old Submariner diving watch. In addition to the outstanding tradition, the present is of course not neglected in this book. After all, Rolex can offer a wide range of movements that are produced in its own manufactory with the highest degree of vertical integration. Quality is just as important as outstanding, officially tested accuracy. All this and much more can be found in the third volume of the successful series The Watch Book.

Gisbert L. Brunner, born in 1947, has been involved with precision timepieces of all kinds since the 1960s, primarily wristwatches. During the quartz watch crisis in the 1970s, his love for the seemingly dying mechanical timepieces increased even more. His passion for collecting led to his first articles in the early 1980s. In the meantime, Brunner has published more than 15 books on the subject. He is in demand worldwide as a lecturer.
