“Guido Mondani Editore” are a publishing house founded by Guido Mondani in 1979, specialized in haute horlogerie and renowned all over the world for its reliability, seriousness and experience.
For many years Mondani has been publishing luxurious books which have become the essential guides for watch dealers, collectors and aficionados all over the world. The Mondani books contain historical and technical information about the most important watch brands, as well as high quality images. Furthermore, each edition also includes updated quotations of the published watches.
The Mondani books are considered true “Bibles” to collect, invest, buy, sell and trade luxury wristwatches.
Guido Mondani is one of the most important Rolex collectors in the world; in 2006 he sold at auction his collection of 309 Rolex wristwatches, achieving various world-records and now he represents a true opinion leader in the watch market.
His wife Franca works by his side and supports him in every single choice and project. She is co-author of many of the Mondani editions and she is the “engine” of our companies.
Mondani books are now the most important reference for those who work in the watch business and those who love timepieces.
Giorgia Mondani represents the next generation of the Mondani family: Giorgia is a very influent businesswoman and she is very active on the social media. As she told the New York Times in her interview, she has always loved watches and she had to fight to enter a male-dominated world. She soon emerged as a key figure in the market, by being a top member at the frequent business meetings around the world – without forgetting the daily management of her publishing house.
Daniele, Giorgia’s husband, used to be a Rolex-nerd even before meeting Giorgia and he joined the family in this new project. He supports her in every business trip and he is an essential part of the daily business of both Mondani Books and Web.
Melo is the fifth proud member of the company and every day he brings joy, love and smart ideas.
