The festive season is approaching, accompanied by cozy evenings by the fireplace, the enticing scent of freshly baked cookies, and the anticipation of Christmas Eve festivities. However, in these moments of joy, time constraints and high expectations can pose a challenge. The idea of perfect family harmony and a successful Christmas roast is sometimes tested by life's unpredictabilities. While we can't take over the cooking for you, we'd like to present an exclusive gift idea: coffee table books from teNeues.

The search for the ideal gift is often demanding, especially when it should be personal and high-quality. teNeues' coffee table books are not just books; they are works of art that uniquely blend the interests and personality of the recipient. These books are not only a source of inspiration but also offer a carefully curated view of the beauty and diversity of our world. Such a coffee table book is more than just decorative; high-quality photographs capture moments that transport the viewer to other worlds, provoke thought, or simply showcase the beauty of the surroundings. As elegant decorations on a coffee table, they become a conversation starter for guests.

For discerning individualists who appreciate creative visual storytelling and seek something extraordinary in the everyday, the following works offer a unique journey of discovery.

Rolex - 3rd updated and expanded edition

The ultimate reference work on the Rolex brand enters a new round. Gisbert L. Brunner explains what makes the uniqueness of the Rolex brand and how it has contributed to the technical development of the wristwatch.

From the first officially certified wristwatch to the waterproof "Oyster" case to the technically sophisticated models of modern times, "The Watch Book Rolex" introduces the reader to the tradition of the brand through impressive images and informative texts. In this updated edition, the latest models of the legendary Submariner and Daytona series are featured, along with an exploration of the unique challenges facing watchmaking in the 21st century. As a special bonus, there is digital content accessible exclusively through the teNeues app for book owners.

The Watch Book Compendium

This coffee table book replaces the previous work, combining "The Watch Book I" and "The Watch Book II" and featuring over 1,000 high-resolution photographs. Author Gisbert L. Brunner narrates the history of the wristwatch and brings together over 40 premium watch brands under one roof.

Considered as standard works, no other photo book offers such a comprehensive collection of exquisite timepieces. Brunner not only provides standard views but also offers direct insights into the mechanics of these masterpieces. The impeccable technology is artfully presented, and premium watches remain a symbol of style, taste, and status. The presentation of materials, designs, and technology fascinates watch enthusiasts, making "The Watch Book Compendium" the perfect gift.

The Watch Book Oris

Renowned author Gisbert L. Brunner, in this new addition to the Watch Book series, delves into the history and industry of Swiss watches, specifically focusing on Oris. What could be more fitting than the connection between the leading expert in mechanical timepieces and the watch manufacturer that exclusively produces mechanical watches? Founded in 1904, Oris stands out in the luxury world of horology for being independent, not led by a large corporation, valued as a down-to-earth brand, and committed to sustainability in an industry not necessarily known for it, following the motto: "Things must make sense."

Of course, the technology is not overlooked in "The Watch Book Oris", as Oris has developed and manufactured 280 different calibers in its company history. Accompanied by testimonials and the best watch models from the nearly 120-year history of the company, this high-quality book offers a unique insight.

Lost in the Beauty of Bad Weather

French photographer Christoph Jacrot tells poetic photo stories of metropolises sinking into rain and snowfall in his book "Lost in the Beauty of Bad Weather". Jacrot deliberately seeks rain, snowstorms, and fog to create beautiful and melancholic photos. The book is a mystical homage to the supposedly "bad" weather while simultaneously showcasing its breathtaking beauty.

Deserted streets without a soul in sight - the photo book presents images that could seem like they are from another world. Jacrot focuses not only on black and white tones but consciously plays with colors. His works exude a strange peacefulness, and flipping through the pages feels like being transported into the scene of a rainy day, observing the forces of nature from the window.

New York Street Diaries

Craving a touch of New York? For Big Apple fans, this photo book presents the private side of the world metropolis in a refreshing and direct way. Intimate black and white photographs capture the people and streets of New York City away from the hustle and bustle. Photographer Phil Penman uses special and extraordinary moments to create a unique photo book. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic or during intense snowstorms, Phil Penman wandered through the empty streets of New York, capturing a world turned upside down.

"New York Street Diaries" shows the city on the East Coast of the USA in its most sensitive moments. Penman doesn't lose sight of the city's residents and presents their authentic vulnerability. The city life of the metropolis is showcased up close, and Penman immerses his readers with refreshing directness into the scene.

Metropolis

This photo book uniquely interprets what makes a city. Captivating black and white photography captures the essence of cities like New York, London, Havana, Kyoto, and Istanbul by uniting people and architecture in unique moments.

What defines a city? Is it its architecture, its residents, or both together? "Metropolis", the photo book by photographer Alan Schaller, answers this question in a unique way. Captivating black and white photography captures the essence of cities like New York, London, Havana, Kyoto, and Istanbul by uniting people and architecture in unique moments.

Schaller transforms extraordinary cityscapes into art, using the interplay of light and darkness to create a monochromatic world that fascinates the viewer. His photographs convey the feeling of spontaneous observations, as if one is strolling through the streets themselves. This is what makes Schaller's work special for his followers.

Greenhouses - Cathedrals for Plants

This book is not only a visual delight but also a true ode to the senses. The breathtaking shots by Werner Pawlok, presented in his characteristic colorful style, make "Greenhouses - Cathedrals for Plants" a sensual experience.
