A price guide to vintage mechanical watches from more than 40 historically significant brands. Illustrated in full color.

Now in its third edition, Classic Wristwatches is an attractive and easy-to-use resource for information on vintage watches, that is, watches no longer in current production. For each of the more than 900* timepieces listed, the authors provide a color photograph; a description of the movement, case, and special features or historical significance; and an estimated value, based on recent auction results. They also forecast whether the value will increase, decrease, or remain the same. The watches are arranged alphabetically by manufacturer; the featured brands include mainstays like Rolex and Patek Philippe, as well as rarities like Record and Enicar.
