The renowned wristwatch expert and historian Gisbert L. Brunner once again lets us share his extensive expertise.

This volume picks up where its predecessor left off.

An infallible gift for the watch collector and connoisseur and anyone who wants to become one.

The second volume in the series includes 24 more luxury watch brands, their history and outstanding models.
The world of wristwatches is in a state of upheaval. So-called smart or connected watches, i.e. watches that communicate with the telephone, 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. After the success of The Watch Book, published in 2015, the second, once again very generously designed volume is therefore a must. Informative texts and numerous pictures present another 24 watch brands and show their special features. This time, however, the protagonists cover a much broader spectrum. In addition to numerous watches that define the popular segment of affordable luxury, there are also timepieces of the chronometric top class.

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.
