As a watch collector, you will need to have proper resources in order to prevent from buying fugazzis, frankenwatches, put-togethers, fakes and so on. One of the advantages of collecting Rolex watches is that there are a lot of books and other publications on their watches to help you with this.

Collecting Rolex watches – especially vintage models – can be a snake pit as we’ve mentioned a few times in the past. Even if you aren’t a newbie to [Rolex] watches, it won’t hurt to come prepared. The books by Guido Mondani Editore are being regarded as the most complete and best documented works of art on the subject. Although they carry books on Panerai, OMEGA and Patek Philippe as well, they are best known for their Rolex books.
