    Watches book by Gisbert L Brunner

    Watches book by Gisbert L Brunner

    Wristwatches presents illustrated portraits of all the popular watch brands – some of them long since unavailable – from American, Germany, Japan, France and, of course, from the world’s major manufacturer of timepieces, Switzerland. In its technical chapters, it explains all the highly complex operations going on underneath the face and tells the fascinating story of the watch, of its design and its various forms and looks. Rounded off by a thorough glossary and a chronology of watchmaking starting in the 16th century, this book is a great read for everyone with a taste for luxury. By Gisbert L. Brunner.
