Synopsis: From the first models made in the 1900s to the luxury brands created by Cartier and Patek Philippe, the wristwatch has become an object of passion among collectors. Through 55 of the most celebrated manufacturers, and more than 800 photos, this spectacular volume looks at the evolution of the watch—its advances in design and technology, use in everyday life, and social impact. The featured styles include the Calatrava for Patek Philippe, Royal Oak for Audemars Piguet, Santos and Tank for Cartier, Submarines for Rolex, and the colorful Swatch, where plastic and the most innovative materials combine with precious gold and diamonds.
