A Superlative Read

Rolex has endured the test of time. To celebrate 100 years of being on top, author and watch aficionado John Goldberg has teamed up with Damiani Publications to pen a tribute to the timeless timepiece, titled 100 Superlative Rolex Watches.

From crystal and gold timepieces to chunky and fake variations, Rolex has certainly earned its well rounded, iconic status in the style world. Goldberg’s green leather-bound and gold letter embossed book is a luxurious fit to the sophisticated accessory as well as a collector’s item meant for horologists and Rolex appreciators alike. The volume boasts more than 700 images and 400 descriptions of a carefully selected collection of Goldberg’s favorite Rolex wristwatches. Goldberg’s musings are a delightful tutorial, taking the reader from the intricate inner workings of the watches to the adorned watch faces and the status symbol influence carried through the decades. This impressive retrospective proves that Rolex will keep on ticking for many more years to come.
