A well-made men’s wristwatch combines inspired design, technical innovation and precise craftsmanship. It helps to define a man’s personal style, and it can be an essential tool for many pursuits. It might be a talisman or an heirloom. It can be a lifelong companion, or part of a greater collection. If it has a history, it can evoke the era in which it was made; if it’s new, it may speak to today’s cutting-edge technology.

Watches that express all of these qualities and more are featured in The Watch, illustrating more than 600 vintage and contemporary watches from fifty leading brands. This thoroughly-revised second edition includes profiles of watch collectors, an invaluable A to Z glossary of watch terms and includes a chapter on buying, collecting and maintaining.
