Catawiki’s goal is to make special objects universally available. Our weekly auctions feature thousands of unusual, rare, and exceptional objects you won’t find in just any store. This book (limited edition of only 2,000 copies) shows the work of four experts, four great enthusiasts of modern and vintage Rolex watches, who dedicated their time to study even the smallest details of these models, which are called Rolex “Professionals”.
The names of the authors are: Franca and Guido Mondani, Paolo Spinello and Gabriele Vittozzi. “Collecting Milgauss, Explorer I, Explorer II, Turn-O-Graph and Yacht-Maste watches” represents a new adventure, a journey through models that no one has ever “explored” so thoroughly. Everything began in the 1950’s, when Rolex decided to use the Oyster case also with models intended for professional use. They wanted to offer watches that with their waterproofness, resistance and precision, would satisfy the needs of athletes on one side and those of some special working categories on the other side. This is the reason why the Turn-O-Graph was created. Don’t miss the rest of the story!
All the images in this volume are exactly like collectors have always wanted them: large, beautiful and showing every little detail of all the watches!
