Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Created as a take-along guide for new and seasoned watch collectors, this book can be used to make on-the-spot judgments as to identification, age, quality, and value. The first part of the book is devoted to history, general information, and a how-to section. The second part consists mainly of a listing of watch manufacturers, identification guides, and prices. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
This thick presentation packs in all the detailed needed to help readers learn about watches and their values. The annual publication (this is 21st edition) of Complete Price Guide to Watches is an exhaustive mini-encyclopedia with over a thousand pages of details on over 10,000 watches. Small black and white photos often accompany the descriptions but the value here lies in price guides which include the general collectibles market and what one might expect to pay in a shop.
