The Catalog of Producers, Prices, Models, and Specifications
By Peter Braun
The must-have guide for the collector of mechanical wristwatches. Complete information--including prices--on over 1,400 models made by more than 130 international brands
The Wristwatch Annual has become the ultimate resource for aficionados of fine watchmaking. Now in its eighteenth edition, it is a one-stop shop for exquisite timepiece buying, offering complete specs while also tracking the latest developments in the watch industry. This year, in addition to its classic, easy-to-browse A–Z section with many new entries, the guide boasts more long-form articles, including features on jewelry-setting techniques and watch prototyping trends by senior editor Marton Radkai.
Presenting a wide range of wristwatches, including exquisite color photographs and complete specifications for each timepiece, Wristwatch Annual provides collectors with a wealth of information close at hand. The book is arranged alphabetically by producer, and within each producer's section are a brief history of the brand (with contact information), as well as 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.
This year, the creators of the Wristwatch Annual are launching a free, bimonthly e-mail newsletter to offer the latest news and insider information on current watch trends and products. Each Wristwatch Annual includes information on how to sign up, so collectors, both novices and veterans, will be able to learn about new products year-round.
With the guide's revised and expanded content and up-to-date listings, along with a new e-newsletter subscription offer, watch lovers will be more informed than ever, and will continue to be so throughout the year.
