The early 2000s were an important period, spanning a time when mechanical watches had quite rightly retaken their place in the world market.

We all may have a digital device in our pocket that is more accurate than a mechanical watch, but a timepiece has soul, personality, and history. The collection in this book is a step into the world of vintage watch collecting, with a range of photographs, intricate research, and accessible reference material that will intrigue both the casual and avid enthusiast.

The collection showcases some of the most interesting, luxurious, and functional twentieth-century (1930-1980) mechanical timepieces ever to be produced, including Heuer's Autavia, Rolex's Submariner, Gallet's MultiChron, Zenith's De Luca, and the Unviersal Space Compax.

Book Features: 

  • A detailed twentieth-century vintage watch guide by a watch collector for watch collectors
  • Over 100 vintage watches, their restoration, their histories, and exceptional pictures displaying their styles 
  • A must have for the vintage watch collector
