1001 Wristwatches

I just got back from Barnes and Noble looking for Georgia Pellegrini's book, which they don't stock, and found this little gem instead, 1001 Wristwatches: From 1925 to the Present by Martin Hausermann, in the bargain aisle. It was only $7.98!  That's cheaper than any of the watch magazines on the newstands.

The book is broken down into Men's watches, Chronographs, Aviator watches, Diver's watches, GMT and World Time Watches, Watches with Alarm features, Tourbillon Watches, Calendar watches, and Repeater watches.  My favorite companies, Glashutte Original and Sinn, are showcased, as well as the big name and not-so-big name Swiss, French and German makers.

It's printed on quality thick gloss paper with watch porn on every page.  The book is basically almost all watch porn with very little in the way of substance but nonetheless it's quite the find.
