The Watch Book II

The Watch Book II

By (author) Gisbert Brunner

$65.00

Full Description

The world of watches is in transition; so-called 'smart watches' are playing a larger role in the world today. However, classic timepieces with mechanical movement will not disappear from people’s wrists, because the ticking of a mechanical watch has been and will continue to be the heartbeat of human culture.

After the success of The Watch Book in 2015, the new follow-up volume, just as beautifully done, is a must-have. Informative text and many pictures highlight 22 additional watch brands and show their unique features and quirks. However, this book includes a much broader spectrum of timepieces than the previous volume: along with many watches that fall into the 'affordable luxury' segment, there are timepieces from the chronometric crème de la crème.

Along with longstanding traditional brands, the book profiles newer ones whose unusual designs and exclusive technical developments have contributed to the history of the watch. This volume also includes a helpful glossary of important terms, making The Watch Book II an absolute must for both timepiece experts and collectors and those new to the world of watch artistry.

Text in English, German, and French.
