With Wristwatch Annual, collectors have at hand a wealth of information on the latest offerings from today's most important watch producers, from Swiss mainstays like Rolex and Patek Philippe to the maverick independent brands springing up across Europe and the U.S. The book is arranged alphabetically by producer, and the movement, functions, case, band, price, and variations of each pictured watch are fully described.
This year’s edition, like its predecessors, will feature a variety of additional articles on independent watchmaking, key personalities in the watch world, and the technical aspects of horology. An illustrated glossary and a primer on watch care help acclimate the reader to the world of fine timepieces.
Features 1,400 models by more than 130 brands. Watches are a topic of perennial interest, with many sources of information online and off, but this remains the reliable, curated guide.
Includes editorial coverage about the exciting brands and trends in the luxury wristwatch market.
