Patek Philippe Complicated Wristwatches by Giampiero Negretti & Paolo De Vecchi
This book is devoted to the complication wristwatches of Patek Philippe and is beautifully presented with excellent colour illustrations throughout. There is an introduction written in English, French and German followed by sections headed:
Pereptual Calendar Watches with Chronograph
World Time Watches
Dual Time Zone Watches
Minute Repetition Watches
In total, 62 complication Patek Philippe wristwatches are illustrated, with a few further watches shown in the introduction. Some of the most famous and important wristwatches made by Patek Philippe are illustrated, many with additional photographs of their movements and inside case backs. The illustrations are greatly enlarged allowing a detailed study of each watch and the characteristics of each are listed, including reference and serial numbers.
A good first edition copy (the book is now out of print). There are a few minor scuffs to the dust jacket and very slight ruffling to the top edge, internally in very good condition and appears to have been hardly used.
