For more than a century, Rolex has stood apart as the most legendary brand of watch in the world. A Rolex connotes many things: a luxury timepiece, a tool of power for movers and shakers and the symbol of passage into adulthood. New labels pop up, styles come and go, but the brand at the top never changes. Ever the record setter—the Daytona that had belonged to Paul Newman was auctioned by Phillips in New York in October 2017 for $17.8 million— it comes as no surprise that Rolex is the most collected watch label in the world. The Vintage Watch Company is the only store of its kind in the world, with a devoted client base of Rolex aficionados, from royalty to sporting legends to stars of the silver screen. Throughout, father and son, John and David Silver have been carefully cataloguing and amassing one of the largest pictorial records of vintage Rolex watches in the world. Published to celebrate the company's 25th anniversary in late 2020, the book contains a unique pictorial collection of vintage Rolex watches that have passed through the shop during the past 25 years. From early Rolex pocket watches to the world’s first wristwatches, elegant in their simplicity yet revolutionary in their impact, to the very first Submariners, iconic Daytonas and jewel-encrusted Crown collections, the mesmerizing archive of vintage timepieces charts the extraordinary rise of an extraordinary brand. Choose from the First Rolex Submariner, later coined the James Bond, or the Early GMT Master made for Pan Am transatlantic pilots. Read about the First Explorers made famous by the 1953 Everest Expedition or the later Explorer II worn by Steve McQueen. Explore Early Vintage collections, from the Officer’s Pocket Watch to the Ladies Diamond; from the Oyster and the Stella & Stone collections, to the Sport Collection.

PRESENTATION: HOW TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THE ROLEX GMT-MASTER The GMT-Master was created to meet the needs of Pan American Airways to supply its pilots with a wristwatch able to indicate the time back home and the time in their arrival destination simultaneously. It was necessary to give the pilots a “technical” wristwatch, which indicated simultaneously the two different times. It is from this point that the request arose from Pan Am to Rolex, to create a new watch for modern age aviators: a watch with two time zones. The name GMT-Master was chosen… Are you a watch collector and you need information about the Rolex GMT-Master? Are you a watch dealer and you want to know exactly what you are buying and selling?

100 Superlative Rolex Watches

"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. The book is divided into seven chapters: Watches with a destiny; Oyster; Chronograph and moon phases; Oyster chronograph and moon phases; Datejust, Day-Date; Sport Models; Cosmograph."--BOOK JACKET.
