The Watch

Watch lovers rejoice! New book "The Watch" is one hell of a classy way to learn watch history. The gloriously illustrated new book traces the evolution of watches through the 20th century, showing how the watch, in all its forms, evolved. It charts the early rise of the wristwatch, shows how the cataclysmic events of the Wall Street Crash unexpectedly led to a golden age of watch production, and demonstrates how the electronic watch, which almost destroyed the traditional industry, led to a mechanical watch renaissance in the last two decades of the century. The hefty hardback has 336 pages, features 400 color images, including those of notable and influential watches as well as relevant illustrations and cool vintage advertisements.
