CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Electric watches, divers’ watches, novelty watches, cool 1960’s watches, and
elite watches like the Rolex V and Chronograph I: it’s time for wristwatches to
rule the market. More and more people are delving into this collecting area,
with auctions and dealers fueling interest. Take a look at what’s available and
what it’s worth, along with an overview of developments in watchmaking
decade-by-decade. Throughout, two-page color spreads compare and contrast pairs
of related watches, with analyses of why one is more valuable than the
other—whether because of age, authenticity, rarity, maker, material, marks,
lack of defects, or additions and restoration. Also included: an illustrated
section on fakes and replicas and how to spot them, as well as facts on key
designers, manufacturers, and technological features.
