The Wristwatch Annual is the classic annual 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 brands on the market today.
Wristwatch Annual is one of the world’s leading wristwatch publications and includes more than 100 of the most important mechanical watch manufacturers, describing their current collections in detail.
Presenting a wide range of wristwatches, with exquisite close-up 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.
