Format: Hardcover
A really good reference book although the valuations seem to be fairly out of date now. Plenty of b/w images covering a wide range of military watches and clocks from around the world.

I purchased this book for my brother in law, who is a watch collector. He is very impressed with this book he says it is providing him with a lot of information about watches he has and the types of watch he would still like to add to his collection. If you collect watches or have an interest in the historical aspects of watches, particularly those linked to the military, then this is the book for you.

Interesting book, but i am little disappointed for too small photos and white-black, too: it's no a good choice for studying watches.

Well done reference book for Military Horologists. 9 April 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Well done reference book for Military Horologists. It is the first illustrated guide devoted specifically to the highly collectable field of military watches and clocks. Covers deck watches, pocket, wrist and clocks. Current prices are provided (in Sterling) for timepieces covered. This book is highly recommended to all fellow military timepiece collectors!

Excellent companion 23 July 2007
By Dimitrios Giannoglou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A nice book, with good photos and useful information. I am a beginner in this area, but I have to admit that the book has a lot to offer. Of course there are enough watches missing, but it is an overall good work. The prices seem to be out-of-date.
Highly recommended, though!

By Antonio Colubi Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
-In my opinion, is an interesting book about military watches.All the explanation are good and is simple to reed.I dindn't find much information about german pilot watch of the second war two: not much about Hanhart and others watches.The same for german watches of werhmacht; you can find information about in my opinion could be longer.In general, i think is a very interesting book!!!

Military Timpieces 1880-1990 13 Jan. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A good concise book with lots of quality pictures and and idea of value in sterling. A worthwhile investment for collectors. My only complaint is that it is almost completely dedicated to watches. Only a small section in the back gives any information about all the ship's, tank, airplane and other clocks of military interest.
