Description

The Wristwatch Annual has become a classic for aficionados of fine watchmaking. It's a one-stop shop for watch buying, offering complete specs and prices on over 1,400 models by more than 130 international brands, while also tracking the latest developments in the watch industry. In addition to the extensive A-Z section, which includes many new entries, senior editor Marton Radkai presents editorial features that take a closer look at a number of exciting American brands on the market today. Presenting a wide range of wristwatches, with exquisite color photographs and complete specifications for each watch, Wristwatch Annual provides collectors with a wealth of information close at hand. The book is arranged alphabetically by producer--within each producer's section is a brief history of the brand (with contact information)--and specifications and materials for each watch, including price, movement, special features, complications, case, dial, band, and variations. Also included are a glossary and a guide to watch maintenance.

The clear photography, structured layout, and lively writing also makes this book a pleasure to read or just browse. This year's edition features updated and expanded content, focusing on new American brands.

Review quote

Praise for previous editions of Wristwatch Annual " An absolute staple in any serious collector's regular reading material."--TheWatchLounge.com " Wristwatch Annual...covers models and specs of fine watches... but it is the unusual makers, all with text describing company characteristics, that make the large softcover especially interesting." --Arizona Daily Star " An invaluable source of information for anyone who wants a thorough survey of the new additions to the market." --Plaza Watch
