The reference work for all watch enthusiasts 

Few objects combine function, elegance and status as skilfully as a wristwatch. The choice of personal timepiece can reveal a lot about us, because it shows the importance we attach to man's most precious possession. A mixture of precise mechanics, craftsmanship, precious materials and innovation characterises the true superlatives.  

In this volume, watch enthusiasts can delight all their senses in a splendidly illustrated and excellently documented chronicle of the world's finest timepieces. It begins with an excursus on the meaning of time and its measurement by ticking gears. It then captivates with portraits of 18 premium manufacturers such as Patek Philippe, Rolex and Cartier.  

These "biographies" trace the development of the most important names in the art of perfect watchmaking from their earliest beginnings to the latest innovations and current models. They explore what exactly makes these houses so exceptional and tell of the remarkable achievements that have earned them their position as outstanding authorities in the European watch industry. 

The Revised Edition of the bestseller for the teNeues anniversary 

To mark the 40th anniversary of the first teNeues illustrated book, some all-time favourites from the past are celebrated in an affordable, modern softcover edition that fits perfectly on any bookshelf. The Watch Book and The Watch Book II represent the beginning of a real success story. Together with the renowned wristwatch expert and historian Gisbert L. Brunner, high-quality illustrated books about the world of luxury watches have been produced ever since. These titles heralded the launch of the internationally renowned The Watch Book series in 2015 and the following year. Now the bestsellers are being reissued and offer sophisticated aesthetics in a small format.
