    The best watch book ever, November 29, 2006

    Finally, a great book on watches. What makes this book so special is that it works for everyone who loves timepieces, whether they’re beginners or experts.

    The book is divided into several sections, including a smart introduction on “what is a watch?” and an informative history of timepieces. The bulk of the book is an interesting survey of fifty of the greatest brands of all time, from Patek to Elgin, from Audemars to Zenith. Then comes one of the best parts of the book–a very useful section on how to collect and maintain your watches, plus instructive first-person accounts from some of the world’s top collectors. Finally, there’s a glossary of understandable definitions of the most common watch terms.

    Most of all, there are over 600 stunning color illustrations, culled from auction houses, private collections, watch companies, as well as hundreds of original photographs shot exclusively for the book.

    All in all, this makes a great gift and a great resource guide. What a wonderful book!

    A very contempory review of fine time pieces, January 9, 2007

    One of the best illustrated books you can find on fine time pieces. The nice thing about this book, besides being very thorough, is that it is very contemporary, with many examples of vintage as well as more recent time pieces.

    Watch enthusiasts praise the book, November 11, 2006

    The watch collectors have their own online forums – as do most collectors today. This book was put together partially by asking them to contribute their photos, so all the compliments about the photos being superb (and they are) is a pat on the back of the collectors who donated their time, effort, and passion about watches by giving their photos for use in the book.
