Most Helpful Customer Reviews
People who like coffee table books should enjoy looking through this book of 23 watch makers with photos of watches they produced and the people who wore them. From movie stars to race drivers and some heads of state this book covers a wide range of people who have been in the news for ages. There are some very nice looking watches on the wrists of JFK, Liz Taylor, Steve McQueen, Albert Einstein and Michelle Obama just to name a few. There is information about the watch company with details about a model or two. Like a lot of books I buy, this would be a nice gift and might encourage someone to visit the book store more.
