ROLEX: HISTORY, ICONS AND RECORD-BREAKING MODELS. Mara Cappelletti and Osvaldo Patrizzi. Antique Collectors' Club Ltd, Woodbridge, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, Easthampton. 152 pp. 24 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781851497836 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: The history of Rolex is inextricably linked to its founder Hans Wilsdorf, who took the first steps in the world of Swiss watchmaking as he dreamed about a timepiece that could be worn around the wrist. This experimental research led Rolex to achieve its highest goals in both technological innovation and in the use of the finest materials alone. Its models have been photographed on the wrists of political leaders, sports champions, and film and fashion celebrities, transforming each rolex into a fully-fledged status symbol, a synonym of elegance and precision. Including essays with a historical and technical slant, in-depth descriptions of the most representative pieces and a brief glossary, the pages in this book sparkle with golden hands, diamond-studded dials and patent leather watchbands, illustrated in period photographs and macro-detail. The volume ends with a chapter dedicated to the most amazing auctions that saw the sale of the Geneva-based company's vintage watches.
