The world of watches is in transition; so-called "smart watches" are playing a larger role. However, classic timepieces with mechanical movement will not disappear from people's wrists, because the ticking of a mechanical watch has been and will continue to be the heartbeat of human culture. After the success of The Watch Book in 2015, the new follow-up volume, just as beautifully done, is a must-have. Informative text and many pictures highlight 22 additional watch brands and show their unique features and quirks. However, this book includes a much broader spectrum of timepieces than the previous volume: along with many watches that fall into the "affordable luxury" segment, there are timepieces from the chronometric crème de la crème. Along with longstanding traditional brands, the book profiles newer ones whose unusual designs and exclusive technical developments have contributed to the history of the watch. This volume also includes a helpful glossary of important terms, making The Watch Book II an absolute must for both timepiece experts and collectors and those new to the world of watch artistry.

The brand with the crown is recognized worldwide as an invaluable sports implement and luxury product. In little more than one hundred years, it has become one of the most successful and innovative watch brands on the planet. Rolex manufactures more than a half a million wristwatches per year while maintaining an outstanding reputation and near-perfect quality. From the beginning, the sponsorship of statesmen, movie stars, and athletes has driven its success, but the company has expanded to include more than just the rich and famous. The Rolex Oyster became the first watch to defy the elements when, in 1927, Mercedes Gleitze wore one while she swam the English Channel. In 1933, the company patented the first automatic winding mechanism. Learn more about this history and read updated reports written about new Rolex ideas and performance tests featured in the German watch magazine Armbanduhren (Wristwatch) from the past 15 years.

With today's technology the way it is it has become virtually impossible to tell a well-crafted counterfeit from the authentic without taking it to a skilled and qualified jeweler. This is especially true with stainless steel models. Advancements in counterfeit manufacture have progressed to such a level that it is usually necessary to literally open the back of the watch case and inspect the interior components themselves to ascertain authenticity. Some of today's "Swiss-Made" counterfeits can now run into the hundreds of dollars. In rare cases even into the thousands where counterfeit watch makers will even work in real 14K & 18K gold. Primarily Chinese based companies continue to produce counterfeit watches at staggering numbers and with current technology and the internet, Chinese based companies can now openly market counterfeit products to markets in the United States, Great Britain and Europe. But the real danger lies with the unsuspecting buyer who believes he is buying a real genuine Rolex watch from a private seller who may have advertised a fake as a "Genuine Rolex" watch he has and must sell for a substantially discounted price on the internet. What amazes me most is not the fact that the guy "must sell' his $6k watch for $1500. If it's a genuine Rolex worth $6K, any reputable jeweler will gladly shell out $1500 to buy it from him at such a substantially low price. But that so many people out there will fall for this. It is one thing to knowingly buy a fake Rolex, but it's another thing altogether to think you are buying a real Rolex and instead end up buying a well-made, modern counterfeit Rolex. The purpose of this book is to show legitimate buyers every model that we know of that is out there being counterfeited in detail. Who would suspect that the "vintage" model is really a vintage fake that was recently manufactured and manufactured to look exactly in every detail like the "real" model. Here legit buyers can see in detail the actual counterfeit version of a watch they may be looking at so they can see little inconsistencies that exist between the counterfeits and the genuine article.

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.

"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.

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?

As supplier to the Royal Italian Navy and specialist in high-precision mechanisms, Panerai perfected the world’s first underwater timepieces in the 1930s, which were not only waterproof at 650 feet, but luminescent as well. Until recently these beautifully designed and technically proficient watches were known only to the Italian military and to a select group of connoisseurs, but today they have become a worldwide phenomenon avidly collected by sportsmen and "Paneristi" throughout the world.Original photography commissioned for the volume highlights the unique technical aspects of Panerai designs, with special sections devoted to the precision instruments invented for the Italian navy, and to international collectors such as Sylvester Stallone and Mike Horn, who wore a Panerai Arktos designed especially for him while making the first-ever solo circumnavigation of the Arctic Circle from 1999–2000. An extensively researched catalogue raisonné of the firm’s collections and archives provides a unique resource for collectors and watch specialists.

PRESENTATION: ROLEX DAY-DATE, THE “PRESIDENT’S WATCH” The Rolex Day-Date is the first wristwatch which indicates the date and the day of the week. In 1956 Rolex presents one of its most successful and most popular watches ever: the Day-Date,. This model is one of the world’s most famous Rolex watches; classic, beautiful, functional, useful and elegant. In 2008 a new chapter of this watch, the Day-date II (ø 41 mm) and in 2015 the new Day-Date 40. Known as “President’s Watch”, this Rolex Day-Date has characterized and influenced the history of horology with developments and innovations during the years.With high definition unreleased images, technical details, dials variants, history and updated price of every model, this book analyses every reference from 1956 until today. TOPICS In this book the authors examine calibers, dials, cases, bracelets and many more components of every model. You’ll find all dials with their variants of color (Stella dial) and material(lapis lazuli, root wood, meteorite, etc). Furthermore: the first Rolex Day-Date, 1800 series, “pie-pan” dials, 18000 series, personalized dials, special series, vintage advertisements, box, papers, Oysterquartz Day-Date, 18200 and 18300 series,Day-Date II, Day-Date 40 and much more. We can read from an official Rolex document: « THE BIRTH OF THE “DATEJUST” AND THE “DAY-DATE” Not satisfied with having realized a selfwinding waterproof watch, we decided to dedicate ourselves to studying the calendar watch. This is how the “Datejust”, which clearly indicates the date on the dial in a small aperture with a Cyclops lens which enlarges it so as tomake it easier to read, was born. The next stage was the launch of the “Day-Date”, a perfected model which also indicates, with letters, the days of the week. The day and the date automatically change every evening at midnight. » These are the words of Roger Federer, a living tennis legend, about his Day-Date II: “The reason I like my Day-Date so much is because it is a legendary watch, elegant but with a certain spirit, with a touch ofmodernity added to its stylish black dial”.
