This title is much more than a pricing manual or an illustrated showcase of beautiful wristwatches. This thorough and indispensable volume is a master class in evaluating wristwatches from vintage to modern. A wide range of examples are looked at with an informed, professional eye and factors affecting value are identified. Its unique compare-and-contrast format demonstrates how to assess value: not only individual market values, but also why one watch is more valuable than another. Each spread features full-colour photos of two similar watches on facing pages with annotations highlighting each watch's 'value features'. Information is provided on key designers, manufacturers, and technological features.
