Retro Watches

The Modern Collector's Guide

ISBN: 9780500022962 (HB - E)

What you wear on your wrist can be more than merely functional. Eschewing the common categories of the 'classics', the ostentatiously high-priced, and the 'blingy', Retro Watches brings together individualist pieces that few have seen and even fewer own. A collector's guide for those who want to make a statement with the watch they wear, but who are looking for something a little different, it collects the most intriguing, visually striking and out-there watch designs from little-known but influential watch brands, along with overlooked but brilliant pieces from the major players. Over 100 watch models are featured, specially photographed for the book and accompanied by accessible, informative texts discussing the watch's design, history and intriguing features, as well as info panels detailing rarity, value, and other key attributes. Additional breakout spreads dive into the cultural and fashion history of watch design and the many innovations of the '60s, '70s, and '80s. Beautifully presented, Retro Watches is the volume for the watch wearer who wants to stand out from the crowd.
