The book is obviously for watch enthusiast. It takes the view point from the owners of particular watches & what it means to them personally as well as information on the watches themselves. It didn't bother me that I didn't know all of the people mentioned in the book, I appreciated their nostalgia & history of their time piece. An enjoyable steady read for watch enthusiasts, a different view point than most books about watches which tends to concentrate on watches, brands, history just like every other watch book. This is a book of personal emotional ownership.
Being interested in old watches and stories about owners with special watches, I purchased this book and never regretted it. The writer is a good story teller and the photography is very nice. Recommend it.
Mine came damaged though. I don't appreciate that at all as I paid full price for the book. Returning it would be a time hassle so I'm gonna keep it.
