5.0 out of 5 stars Wristwatch Annual 2013 15 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The "Bible" of Watch Annuals. A must have every year for any admirer of quality watches. Very comprehensive guide to watch manufacturers and technical information for individual watches. Not too many adverts unlike many other annuals and very up to date information on the latest new models.

I bought the Kindle edition to check some details on a couple of specific watch models.

Having bought four or five previous physical copies of the Wristwatch Annual, I am pretty familiar with the format and the coverage.

Unless I am very much mistaken, the Kindle edition of this book is massively abridged. I could find neither of the two current model watches I was hoping to check. These are not obscure models from obscure brands either - they are mainstream models from mainstream brands - the Rolex Milgauss and the Hamilton Khaki Field Auto.

In the Rolex section, I did not even find any illustrations of watch movements which normally appear at the end of the section for most brands so I suspect the content has been radically cut.

I returned the Kindle edition as it is useless to me.

Perhaps someone who owns the paperback edition of Wristwatch Annual 2013 can comment and let me know if it contains the two watches I mentioned earlier - I might buy the paperback instead.

Thanks in advance.
