Hi guys,

I'm new to vintage watches and found it relatively difficult to find information about details of a lot of particular models. Is there a wikipedia type of website that support search and user input of a holistic catalogue of detail information of different versions of historical versions of the major brands? I would like to find it even if it is not free.

Thanks.

You mean like this:

Don't know how complete or accurate this is, but it does match your description.

Hope this helps,

This is quite interesting, as it is providing information in a catalog way.

But still I do find the scarcity of information again, as I can't find any information regarding Rolex Precision models here, not mention the specs to validate the genuineness of particular ref model. Is there a place to find more holistic and detailed information?

"Precision" was kind of a catch-all phrase used by Rolex for watches with non-chronometer rated movements. Some were automatic, some manual wind. Some had Oyster cases, some were not waterproof. Some had Swiss made cases, some had locally made cases with Rolex movements.

I don't know of any website that details all of the different Rolex models. There is a pretty good forum dedicated to vintage Rolex watches in general:

http://www.vintagerolexforum.com/

There are very knowledgeable people there. However, since these models are not as collectible as other (particularly the GMT and Submariner) Rolex time-only models, there isn't that much information on the Precision line.

Hope this helps,
