Budding watch collectors should add this stunning coffee table book to their library. Rolex is perhaps the most famous watch brand in the world and its reputation as a status symbol and genuinely high-quality watch is unimpeachable. Rolex: The Impossible Collection celebrates the brand’s legacy as watchmakers and lays out the history of Rolex starting with its founder Hans Wildorf. Written by Fabienne Reybaud, Rolex: The Impossible Collection spans nearly 200 pages and charts the innovations in watchmaking that Rolex has brought about. The first waterproof watch, the first self-winding mechanism, the first wristwatch to fly over Mt. Everest, the first diver’s watch waterproof to 100 meters, and the first to descend the Mariana Trench. Additionally, you’ll find details about Rolex’s record-setting Daytona, which sold for $17.8 million.
Rolex: The Impossible Collection is packaged in a luxury leather clamshell case with metal plaque. And every purchase of the book, which is priced at $995, includes a signature canvas tote and complimentary white gloves.
