The comprehensive coffee-table book replaces the earlier The Watch Book Compendium and combines The Watch Book I and II. As usual, the successful author Gisbert L. Brunner shines with his extensive expertise and brings his readers closer to the history of the wristwatch with more than 1,000 high-resolution photographs. With over 40 pieces, hardly any other illustrated book gathers more premium watch brands under one roof. The predecessors of The Watch Book have long been regarded as standard works by experts - because no other photo book depicts more of the noble timepieces. The author does not only show the luxury timepieces in a frontal and side view, as many catalogs have to offer. The reader often gets a direct view of the sophisticated mechanics of these small masterpieces of extraordinary craftsmanship. There is no more beautiful and artistic way to present accomplished technology. Gisbert invites his interested reader on a journey through time in the world of clocks.
