Originally released in 2006, The Watch delivered a detailed and comprehensive look at watches of every era. For 2018, author Gene Stone teams up with Hodinkee's Stephen Pulvirent for a new edition of the book that gets beefed up with more than 430 new watches as well as new profiles on collectors and a refresh of the book's glossary of watch terms.
"The Watch is the most popular book on vintage and contemporary mechanical watches, appealing to both beginners and experts. In the decade since it was published, the international audience of watch lovers and watch collectors has grown exponentially. It’s time for The Watch, Thoroughly Revised. For this new edition, the original author, Gene Stone, is joined by Stephen Pulvirent of Hodinkee.com. Together, they have thoroughly revamped the book to reflect the current state of the watch world, with the addition of new brands, new models, and more focused and nuanced coverage of the traditional brand leaders, including Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega, and TAG Heuer."
