Riassunto: Wristwatches are 'micromarvels' of engineering that attract the attention of collectors, investors and regular wearers alike. "Cult Watches" is a lavishly illustrated account of the world's most popular classic timepieces - the top 30 that have achieved cult status, from the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona and Cartier Tank to Ingersoll Mickey Mouse watches and the 'quartz revolution' Swatches. Watch-industry expert Michael Balfour introduces the great horological innovators and their legacies, and adds historical asides that enhance our understanding of both their contexts and their enduring attractions. Future contenders for the status of cult watch are not forgotten, with the result that this book features hundreds of watches in words and pictures. This is the first book to portray the wristwatches with the most dedicated following. Each model and its brand is profusely illustrated with a fascinating variety of both historical and contemporary images, for ready reference. This is a beautifully produced book that will appeal to watch enthusiasts, collectors and investors worldwide.
About the Author: Michael Balfour is a leading commentator on the world watch industry, and broadcasts and lectures on the subject. He regularly writes for many international watch journals, and is the principal watch-industry correspondent for the Financial Times.
