This volume is essentially an author's view of the 30 most iconic 'cult' watches. Watch lovers will enjoy the sumptuous photography, the pen-portraits of how these watches came into being, and how they acquired their cult-status. These classics include many of the usual suspects such as the Rolex Submariner and the Omega Speedmaster, as well as some more unexpected ones like the Mondaine Railway watch.
People new to watches will love the direction it gives to appreciating the most significant watches ever made, while more seasoned watch lovers may enjoy using the book to plan their next purchase..! ;-)
