Dandy lecture

A couple weeks back we mentioned that the world's finest collection of Rolexes will go up for auction in Italy this spring. If you're thinking of acquiring some of the incredible timepieces on offer, you should probably get a copy of an amazing new book called 100 Superlative Rolex Watches first. Edited by renowned Rolex expert John Goldberger, it comes in a green leather slipcase (like Rolex's famed watch boxes) and contains full details and photos on 100 of the finest and rarest Rolex watches ever made, including examples that belonged to the Sultan of Oman, the Emperor of Vietnam, and Elvis Presley. The book is priced at $200, while most of the watches pictured inside are worth hundreds of thousands.
