There's one for every occasiobn, as collectors and watch-lovers know well from their own selections. The time is everywhwere these days - on our mobile, on illuminated road signs, on motorbike or car dashboards - but we still need to have it on our wrist. And manufacturers from Switzerland and elsewhere, still produce watches that can become works of art, wonders of technology, purveyors of taste or pure luxuries. This book explores the subject in 256 compact pages, richly illustrated with pictures of the most recent and innovative designs. The best watches for the weekend, for intimate evenings, for the office; a watch to match my favourite shirt, one to give as a birthday present, or one to make me look like a film star. Written by a journalist specialising in clocks and watches.
