Miller, Judith.

Octopus Publishing Group: 2009.

"The story of wristwatch design is told here through 300 captioned color photos of splendid examples from Rolex and Hamilton, Longines and Bulova, Swatch and Omega, and many other fine or fashionable makers, set with quotes on watches and time from notable voices. "When a guy takes off his coat, he's not going to fight. When a guy takes off his wristwatch, watch out!" says Basketball Hall of Famer Al McGuire, for example. Antiques expert Judith Miller looks at choice items from each decade of the 20th century, as well as particular collecting areas (novelty, diving, military, and mystery watches), and provides insights into the major manufacturers and most collectible models".

Softcover. 5.5"x6.5", 304 pages, color illustrations. Fine.
