Heavy on opinion, light on fact
The author is clearly knowledgeable about Rolex watches, but the overall content of this book is primarily a defense of his overarching opinion that the vintage Rolex watch design is preferable to the modern Rolex watch. The English translation suffers from regular typos and non-native sentence construction, which can make it more difficult than necessary to understand the thought the author is attempting to share. The author also includes some oddball thoughts, such as questioning if the Omega Speedmaster ever went to the moon, which again detracts from the overall tone of the book. I expected this book to be significantly more factual and significantly broader in it’s scope. By it’s conclusion, the reader will be less interested in the author’s predictable pondering of “why do I think the X vintage Rolex model is better than the modern X Rolex model”. A better subtitle for the book might be “Why I think vintage Rolexes have been embraced by the Rolex collector community”.
