Format: Hardcover
This is a very interesting book to dip into and covers an eclectic mix of watches from the Rolex Submariner, Breitling Navitimer and Omega Speedmaster to Ingersoll Character (i.e. Mickey Mouse) watches and Swatches as well. Each gets several pages setting out information on the brand/manufacturer and the cult watch itself, with very good colour photographs.

Any sort of "Top 10" list or similar will always provoke a bit of discussion, and for watch connoiseurs, this book will be no different, but that's not always such a bad thing!

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..! ;-)

Bought this as a Christmas gift for a watch fanatic other half, who really loves it. It seems to be following him around the house! Lots of good quality photos and snippets of information about the individual watches and including random bits about celebreties that wore them. A really lovely book for that man who likes to collect!!!
