A Man & His Watch : Iconic Watches & Stories from the Men Who Wore Them (SLP) [Hardcover]
Stilren bok att ha framme eller i hyllan skriven av en riktig klockentusiast. The volume is filled with heartfelt stories. Contains dozens of beautifully photographed watches. The real joy, though, is found in the stories that unfold about each one. Sumptuously photographed. This may be the first book to unlock not only why wristwatches remain the subject of such attention today, a generation after their purpose was lost to PCs and smartphones, but also why we began to cherish them so much in the first place.

I remember the day my father came home with it on his wrist. He was so proud, and I was so happy for him, because I knew the watch was more than just a new timepiece; that Rolex marked his first successful year in business for himself. When I was a kid, my father was always pointing out to me welldesigned and well-crafted things: cars, motorcycles, architecture, and, of course, watches.
