I have always loved Guido Mondani's Rolex books. They have always been such a great authority on Rolexes, and those of you who are lucky enough to have stepped foot into our client room at BWD will know that we have several of the Guido Mondani tomes on our bookshelves, on various subjects.
Mondani's latest book, Steel Rolex, is another authoritative work on steel Rolexes, and it is an honour and a privilege to be able to say that the Bamford Watch Department is featured in this book. I think it really is the ultimate Rolex book, and to have it sat in our client room next to so many great works on great watches is a real honour.
Giorgia Mondani's inspirations for her co-authorship on this Steel Rolex book are attributed from the countless meetings with private collectors and their prized Rolex possessions. It is almost as if these mechanical watches have taken upon a life of their own, and Giorgia's mission to showcase these priceless collection pieces with a justified deviation from the norm.
Moving away from 'typical-typological' (organization by type) categories, it is with her gained experience to dive into the world of Rolex upon a singular element – Steel, stainless steel to be exact.Steel Rolex represents a new concept, in terms of content and images.
Limited edition of only 599 examples, STEEL ROLEX is available to purchase now from the Bamford Watch Department. Please visit our website for more information: www.bamfordwatchdepartment.com.
