The Watch: A Twentieth-Century Style History  /  $50

Although the first wristwatches appeared hundreds of years earlier, it wasn't until the 20th century — and WWI in particular — that watches truly took off. The Watch: A Twentieth-Century Style History is a deep dive into the changes that took place over the years, from their early rise to the advent of the quartz movement and the renaissance of mechanical movements towards the end of the century. Alongside the text are hundreds of full-color photos, vintage advertisements, and other promotional materials that help show fine detail and give context to the various releases. Penned by the former deputy worldwide head of Sotheby's watch division, it is a fascinating read for any horological aficionado.
