The Watch is the most popular book on vintage and contemporary mechanical watches, appealing to both beginners and experts. In the decade since it was published, the international audience of watch lovers and watch collectors has grown exponentially. It's time for The Watch, Thoroughly Revised. For this new edition, the original author, Gene Stone, is joined by Stephen Pulvirent of Hodinkee.com. Together, they have thoroughly revamped the book to reflect the current state of the watch world, with the addition of new brands, new models, and more focused and nuanced coverage of the traditional brand leaders, including Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega, and TAG Heuer.

Review Text

"This is one of those rare men's style books - or at least men's style adjacent - that's smart, but also accessible. It does a wonderful job of distilling what makes watches special without making the casual reader feel like an outsider. The Watch is something that both collectors and neophytes can enjoy, which is why it's been one of the bestselling books on this subject for over a decade." PutThisOn.com
