    Lots of pictures and there are sections on each of the sports models that are 2 3 pages long each. A good book if you're just looking to open it at any page a read a little bit about the sports models. The History section can be read in half an hour or less and is very high level. Nothing much about Hans Wilsdorf and even less on Alfred Davis. Wilsdorf is heaped with praise about his marketing tactics but the reader is not exposed to anything in depth. I got this book after reading the Patek Philippe Authorized Biography and that book is a history book proper packed with facts, many of which you won't find online. This book is a casual fun book, good for the coffee table, good for the layman or casual Rolex fan, but nothing particularly useful for a WIS or watch history buff.

    I read through this book, cover to cover, in 45 minutes. The information may only be adequate for someone who's never heard of Rolex before. Nothing here goes in depth, it's all surface level and really would benefit from a little effort.
