It’s the ultimate watch collector’s coffee table book.
With The Watch Book and The Watch Book II author and horology expert Gisbert L. Brunner created the ultimate coffee table book references for watch collectors and enthusiasts.
Now he’s combined and enhanced the material into the mother of all luxury watch tomes – The Watch Book: Compendium. It features almost 1,000 photos and is due out this month from German publisher teNeues.
Now available for pre-order on Amazon, The Watch Book: Compendium focuses on the world’s 40 coolest and most important watch brands, from Rolex, Omega and Patek Philippe to more avant-garde names like Richard Mille and MB&F, whose sci-fi inspired watches cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Covering everything from cool archival pieces-including several military commissions-to the latest high-tech multifaceted timekeepers and tourbillons, The Watch Book: Compendium is a must-have for anyone who loves watches or anything mechanical and beautifully designed.
«Few objects combine function, elegance, and status as well as a wristwatch,» Brunner notes. «A blend of precise mechanics, craftsmanship, fine materials, and innovation distinguishes the truly superlative examples.
