Wristwatch Annual is the Holly Grail! ¶
Whether it be how many vph, or if the case is made out of platinum or titanium, the Wristwatch Annual has a plethora of information for every watch enthusiast.
Chalk full of companies, models and Limited Editions, it has been an excellent source to many watch dealers around the world. Every company has a nice page of their history, and upcoming prototypes as well as in depth information on design, manufacturing and materials used. Movements are detailed from the ever popular ETA/ Valjoux calibers to many companies that manufacture their own in house movements. There is also a price reference on almost all the companies in the guide.
Every year we have used our copy to great extent, especially if we are dealing with a watch brand that is not a house hold name brand. If you are a watch enthusiast, or know someone who is, this publication is must.
The Wristwatch Annual 2009 is published by Abeville Press and is available at Matt Baily.
