The sixteenth edition of this watch-industry mainstay features more than 1,400 of the world’s most luxurious wristwatches, providing a color photograph and complete specifications for each one. With Wristwatch Annual, collectors have a wealth of information close at hand: the book is arranged alphabetically by producer, and within each producer’s section are complete details for each watch, including price, materials, movement, special features, complications, case, dial, band, and available variations of a particular model.
