Not only are these watches special in their own right, but it is the stories about the men who wear them, and how the watches came into their possession that show the bond between a man and his watch.

Coffee table books are one of the cultural objects that at some point went from seeming unnecessary and unjustifiably expensive to being the symbolic measure of adulthood and self-actualization. Coffee table books aren't known for their literary appeal, after all. They're known for being beautiful—and for giving house guests hints as to the very serious stuff you're into in a very serious way. It has an insightful balance between history and different models which are sure to add to your knowledge.It goes in-depth about vintage Rolex models, rare special editions, and uncommon watches that you may not have seen before. It goes through how to spot a fake Rolex, in-depth information about Rolex’s manufacturing process, materials used, and what goes into making a Rolex watch. This book highlights the interesting topic of wristwatches as a means of telling the time – and the contrast of the technology of the 21st century where smartphones and computers actually tell the time much more accurately than a wristwatch. But despite this, wristwatches have ”seen a boom in the development, production, and appreciation of all things horological.” It is an extremely valuable resource for those who want to become experts about the Daytona and learn about little-known information that is difficult to find anywhere else.

With that said, there are many books out there that focus on watches in one way or another. Some are dedicated completely to specific models and cover this exhaustively, and others get to the bottom of the history of watches.

The Watch Book Rolex is written by wristwatch expert Gisbert L. Brunner and goes in-depth about Rolex watches. The Vintage Watch Company is the only store of its kind in the world, with a devoted client base of devoted Rolex aficionados, from royalty to sporting legends to stars of the silver screen. Throughout, father and son, John and David Silver have been carefully cataloguing and amassing one of the largest pictorial records of vintage Rolex watches in the world. Published to celebrate the company's 25th anniversary in late 2020, the book contains a unique pictorial collection of vintage Rolex watches that have passed through the shop during the past 25 years. It contains lots of insightful information for collectors as well as discussed market values. It focuses particularly on vintage Rolex watches, so if you really want to get into the details, this is a great book to get.

It particularly highlights information that is difficult to find in regards to variations of the bezels, dials, and cases which can affect the collectability of a watch enormously. Just like the book about the self-winding Rolex Daytona, this book provides extremely insightful and in-depth information about the manual-winding Daytonas, including little-known details that are the result of thorough research.

This book is truly a must-read for every Rolex lover and someone who wants to dig deep into the history and watches of Rolex. This compendium includes vol 1 and vol 2 in one set. The books are also available to buy separately, but if you really want to immerse yourself, you need to read both. Both books to buy separately can be found higher up on this list. We have in this article talked about books on watches in general, but below, we dig into books solely dedicated to and focused on Rolex watches. Many of these books provide not only interesting history and images, but also valuable in-depth knowledge and details that can not be found anywhere else.
