In the niche world of horology, Gisbert Brunner may just be the all-knowing one. Having published countless articles and books focused on timepieces, his latest work, The Watch Book: Rolex, highlights all of the rarest, most expensive, most iconic and most innovative watches in the 112 year history of the Rolex brand. Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex has grown into a global brand with the same name recognition strength as Nike, Louis Vuitton, BMW and more. Everything from the first ever wristwatch produced to the Oyster, Datejust, Daytona and Submariner are covered in the book.

All watch enthusiasts and those yearning to get into collecting should look into adding this book to their collections. Published by teNeues, The Watch Book: Rolex is currently available for pre-order on Amazon for $55 USD with a release date set for July 15. You can also take a look at the latest BAPE x Rolex collaboration while you wait.
