PRESENTATION: STAINLESS STEEL ROLEX This book is about all stainless steel Rolex watches, both modern and vintage models. The stainless steel is an alloy, mainly composed of iron and carbon, which is resistant, shiny, but above all… fashionable. A Rolex watch must work and perform even in the most hostile environment. With the passing of time, the techniques of stainless steel production have continuously evolved. Therefore there are different types of steel which have been used by Rolex (i.e. Rolesium: a Rolex patent from 21 May 1932 to arrive today to 904L steel). Technical details, historical profiles, characteristics of all Rolex watches in stainless steel will satisfy your professional needs and will also represent a useful guide to invest in these watches.

With today's technology the way it is it has become virtually impossible to tell a well-crafted counterfeit from the authentic without taking it to a skilled and qualified jeweler. This is especially true with stainless steel models. Advancements in counterfeit manufacture have progressed to such a level that it is usually necessary to literally open the back of the watch case and inspect the interior components themselves to ascertain authenticity. Some of today's "Swiss-Made" counterfeits can now run into the hundreds of dollars. In rare cases even into the thousands where counterfeit watch makers will even work in real 14K & 18K gold. Primarily Chinese based companies continue to produce counterfeit watches at staggering numbers and with current technology and the internet, Chinese based companies can now openly market counterfeit products to markets in the United States, Great Britain and Europe. But the real danger lies with the unsuspecting buyer who believes he is buying a real genuine Rolex watch from a private seller who may have advertised a fake as a "Genuine Rolex" watch he has and must sell for a substantially discounted price on the internet. What amazes me most is not the fact that the guy "must sell' his $6k watch for $1500. If it's a genuine Rolex worth $6K, any reputable jeweler will gladly shell out $1500 to buy it from him at such a substantially low price. But that so many people out there will fall for this. It is one thing to knowingly buy a fake Rolex, but it's another thing altogether to think you are buying a real Rolex and instead end up buying a well-made, modern counterfeit Rolex. The purpose of this book is to show legitimate buyers every model that we know of that is out there being counterfeited in detail. Who would suspect that the "vintage" model is really a vintage fake that was recently manufactured and manufactured to look exactly in every detail like the "real" model. Here legit buyers can see in detail the actual counterfeit version of a watch they may be looking at so they can see little inconsistencies that exist between the counterfeits and the genuine article.

"Rolex was established in 1908, a century ago, so one hundred years have passed from that day to the publication of this volume in which the author, John Goldberger, illustrates what he considers to be the 100 most beautiful examples ever produced. One hundred years of life, and one hundred examples, traced back through time thanks to painstaking research, with the collaboration of some of the most renowed collectors in the world, and photographed to show the characteristics of the movement, case and dial of each example in the best possible way. The top one hundred, we could say, also to narrow down the field of research, which would otherwise have been incredibly vast, to grasp the essence of a brand that has probably contributed more than any other to the development of the wristwatch. Giampiero Negretti Over 700 colour illustrations and 400 descriptions provide the collector and watch enthusiast with invaluable information on reference numbers, watchcases, faces, movements, related calibres and the year of production of each watch. The book is divided into seven chapters: Watches with a destiny; Oyster; Chronograph and moon phases; Oyster chronograph and moon phases; Datejust, Day-Date; Sport Models; Cosmograph."--BOOK JACKET.
