9780810930933: The Watch

The wristwatch is the only jewellery that most men will wear, although many would not want to call it that. A watch may be a practical device for the sole purpose of telling the time as accurately as possible, a complicated machine, a wearable design object, or a status symbol. Some watch wearers, like scuba divers or pilots, rely on their timepieces for safety and survival. Gene Stone's The Watch covers all these things and more. It ranges over the world of watches without prejudice, mixing the old with the new, and the expensive with the economical. It introduces the fifty major brands that any watch collector must be familiar with. Essential wisdom on buying, collecting, maintaining and wearing watches is provided. And an encyclopedic glossary offers a crash course in watch lore. Best of all are the more than 500 photographs of terrific watches, including remarkable details of dials and movements, and selected for their beauty and diversity from collections around the world.

About the Author:

Gene Stone, who has been a Peace Corps volunteer, a screenwriter and a journalist, as well as a book, newspaper and magazine editor, has spent the last five years researching the watch business. The author of more than twenty-five books and an avid watch collector, he writes a column on watches for Travel + Leisure GolfMagazine.

From Booklist:

A wish book, a luxury item--yes. But there are serious watch collectors abroad in the land who not only would enjoy honing their appreciation for timeless timepieces but also could stand to learn a thing or two more about their passion, and this gorgeously illustrated large-format book is the answer. True, this book is for men; women readers are welcome, certainly, but featured here are vintage and contemporary watches for men. Watch collector Stone supplies, based on his considerable research, profiles of the 50 brands, arranged in alphabetical order, which are his personal favorites. (Other collectors and enthusiasts, as he acknowledges, might select other brands to discuss--but, after all, this is his book.) Accompanying text imparts, in several short paragraphs, the history of each brand; the beautifully photographed examples are absolutely breathtaking. Even readers who do not usually think of themselves as "watchies" will find it difficult to resist poring over these luscious pages. A general history of timepieces inaugurates the book and sets the informative and enthusiastic tone carried throughout. Brad Hooper
