At last, the bestsellers The Watch Book I and The Watch Book II are available as an inexpensive anthology for € 49.90 instead of € 120 together.

The 41 most important watch brands in the world are comprehensively honoured through the knowledgeable texts of watch expert Gisbert L. Brunner and with almost 1 000 pictures.

A must for all collectors and connoisseurs of wristwatches and those who want to become one

The Watch Book I and II combined in one volume: extensive expertise by the renowned wristwatch expert and watch historian Gisbert L. Brunner and almost 1 000 high-quality photographs. This compendium presents the earliest beginnings and outstanding names in the upscale art of watchmaking. Few objects combine function, elegance and status as skilfully as a wristwatch. A blend of precise mechanics, craftsmanship, precious materials and innovation characterises the true superlatives. However, the world of the wristwatch is in a state of upheaval; so-called smartwatches are becoming increasingly important. Nevertheless, they will not displace the classic timepieces with mechanical movements from wrists, because the ticking of the mechanical watch is and remains the heartbeat of human culture. Following the individual successes of The Watch Book I and The Watch Book II, these two titles are now available together in one comprehensive volume. Watch lovers can enjoy with all their senses a magnificently illustrated and superbly documented chronicle of the world's finest timepieces. It captivates with portraits of more than 40 premium watch brands and shows their extraordinary designs as well as exclusive technical developments that have made their contribution to the history of the wristwatch. An informative glossary of important technical terms makes The Watch Book - Compendium a standard work for watch collectors.

Gisbert L. Brunner, born in 1947, has been involved with precision timepieces of all kinds since the 1960s, primarily wristwatches. During the quartz watch crisis in the 1970s, his love for the seemingly dying mechanical timepieces increased even more. His passion for collecting led to his first articles in the early 1980s. In the meantime, Brunner has published more than 15 books on the subject. He is in demand worldwide as a lecturer.
