I’m sure you’ll all agree with us that the best way to honor this watch and give it the importance it deserves, is to put it, through the will of the people, in the Hall of Fame. In full harmony with Guido Mondani, we decided to contribute to this consecration by creating a special edition for a selected and limited number of elite collectors, a monumental publication which gives readers an even better opportunity to appreciate the watch which has represented for a long, indeed very long time the Holy Grail for timepiece lovers.
After “Rolex Submariner Story” and “Collecting Rolex Milgauss • Yacht-Master • Turn-O-Graph • Explorer”, Guido Mondani once again wants to touch the heartstrings of coronet enthusiasts with one more large edition, which I am sure will match up to its name: “Rolex Daytona Story”.
All the illustrated pictures in this volume are exactly what collectors have always desired: large, beautiful and depicting every minute detail of all the watches!
With my practical and easy to use “Pocket” editions I wanted to explain which are the most important aspects of Daytona production, but the real ultimate aim of an insatiable Rolex lover like me is to be the author of a masterpiece like this one. I have always affirmed that content is much more important than size, but in this case, the highest quality images, the unpublished information and the details described in this huge book make all the difference. The photos in fact have a magical power to them: a photo talks, stimulates and fulfills our visual and comparison needs.
Therefore I invite all of those who have the privilege to leaf through these pages, to enjoy all details of this book, being sure that they will be moved, just as much as we were, by the sheer beauty and power emanated from these watches.
I would like once again to remind people, who are still a little skeptical about the importance of having a watch in perfect condition, that a watch needs service, just like a car (even if a luxury car). The original spare part does not change either its authenticity or value; indeed, it lengthens its lifespan.
