Cult Watches: The World’s Enduring Classics by Michael Balfour





December 21, 2007
Wristwatches are ‘micromarvels’ of engineering that attract the attention of collectors, investors and regular wearers alike. Cult Watches is a lavishly illustrated account of the world’s most popular classic timepieces – the top 30 that have achieved cult status, from the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona and Cartier Tank to Ingersoll Mickey Mouse watches and the ‘quartz revolution’ Swatches. Watch-industry expert and Europa Star correspondent Michael Balfour introduces the great horological innovators and their legacies, and adds historical asides that greatly enlarge both their contexts and their perennial attractions. Future contenders for the status of cult watch are not forgotten, with the result that this book features hundreds of watches in words and pictures.

• The first book to portray the wristwatches with the most dedicated following.

• Each model and its brand is profusely illustrated with a fascinating variety of both historical and contemporary images, for ready reference.

• A beautifully produced book that will appeal to watch enthusiasts, collectors and investors worldwide.

A must for any watch enthusiast – after all doesn’t everyone need something else to read after Europa Star!
