The legendary Rolex brand has built their reputation on luxury timepieces for over a century, as their watches have adorned the wrists of some of the most famous figures in history. Author Fabienne Reybaud has written the quintessential volume about the very best watch label in the world, showcasing the most innovative and valuable watches by Rolex.

The book starts at the very beginning in 1905, diving into the roots of the founder, Hans Wilsdorf, and his dream to produce wristwatches. It also examines his drive to produce the highest quality movements, leading the company to create the first timepiece in the world to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision. From there, it weaves its way through Rolex milestones, including their production of the first waterproof watch and the first wristwatch to withstand magnetic fields of 1,000 gauss. Filled with 200 photos and illustrations, this handcrafted, limited edition 194-page book comes in a luxury clamshell case with a metal plaque.
