The Ultimate Guide for Vintage Luxury Watch Collectors: the Mondani Books By Giorgia Mondani

Vintage Luxury Watches are fast becoming a great option for investment and stashing up for the future. Apart from the financial benefits, there is the philosophy of knowing, of having and of simply belonging to a particular social stratum. That is the life of a Watch collector, or any collector for that matter.

Luxury watches as investment

Collecting luxury wrist watches is not a mere fantasy or hobby; it takes careful decision making abilities, guts, an eye for detail, knowledge and a great understanding of the industry. This is why it is important to always rely on the experts and the information they have to give.

Treasure of knowledge for watch collectors

Are you a watch collector? Are you looking to add to your vintage luxury watch collection? Do you need a guide to point you to the right direction? Look no further. The Mondani Books are everything you need and more. When it comes to luxury wrist watches, Guido Mondani and his family are known globally for their rich knowledge and taste in brands like Rolex, Philippe Patek, Panerai and so many more.

How it all started…

One woman’s gesture of love and her husband’s curiosity led to what we may now call the Mondani Empire. Mondani Books is a part of that empire and is today referred to as the world’s most trusted resource for watch dealers, collectors and enthusiasts. Thankfully, Guido Mondani already had a fairly established publishing house he founded in 1979, after he saw the need to provide useful information on the first Rolex he ever had, a Rolex moon phase he got as a gift from his wife, Franca. That was in 1986. Since then, the Mondanis have published several books, especially on the Rolex brand. Here are a few of them and how they can help you become a better Vintage Luxury Watch Collector.

  • Rolex Mania: This is a 208-page book on all things Rolex. It is written in both English and Italian and provides useful information in both modern and vintage Rolex watches, their production and price estimates of all watches made by Rolex. If you’re looking to make your first purchase or you’re first-time investor, this is a great place to start. It includes chapters representing models such as Deep Sea, Quartz, GMT-Master Pepsi, Sky-Dweller, etc.
  • Rolex GMT-Master: This is the perfect guide to what is often called Batman Jubilee. It is the complete guide on the series and also includes estimates for the products. The book was written by Giorgia Mondani, Guido Mondani and Lele Ravagnani. In this book, you’ll find out the history behind the creation of this vintage work and why it has remained a masterpiece for decades.
  • Rolex Encyclopaedia: This is a 3-in-1 book that boasts of being the “most complete work ever realized on Rolex”. The book consists of three volumes and gives you a step-by-step evolutionary journey and history into every single wristwatch Rolex has produced till date. And this begins from 1905. This is one book that tells you the story behind every watch and gives you an insight into the kind of purchase to make and why.

There are several other books, including the Daytona Manual-Winding, the Rolex Submariner, Sea-Dweller, Deep Sea, and the Rolex Day-Date. There are books on other brands too such as Patek Philippe Nautilus Aquanaut, and so on. Take it from someone who made over $11 Million in auction of Rolex watches as far back as 2006. I’m certain that these books will help you with everything you need.
