This is not an average book about watches. Comprehensive is an understatement. In fact, The Wristwatch Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide to Mechanical Watches, by Ryan Schmidt, makes the case that it is the definitive guide to analog timepieces. --Geoff Nudelman "The Manual, October 16, 2016 ""
it is refreshing to find 470 colour photographs of watches from over 90 brands instead of the round-up of usual suspects that tend to dominate the arena. In a nutshell, Ryan Schmidt is your trusted guide to the cosmos of horology. --Rebecca Doulton "The Jewellery Editor"
'Many books focus on a single brand or even a single complication, while The Wristwatch Handbook aims to be as over- arching as possible. At 352 pages in large format, the handbook is a beautiful book, filled with captivating images and explanatory text which never gets too dry or too technical. . . The Wristwatch Handbook, $85 .00, published by ACC Art Books, is definitely worth consideration by anyone wanting to become serious about watches.' --Revolution Magazine
