Patek Philippe Genève Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery

Devoted solely to Patek Philippe wristwatches, this book was published in 1988 as a follow up volume to Huber and Banbery’s 1982 work which had concentrated on Patek Philippe’s pocket watch production . In excellent condition, this book appears to be unused and retains its dust jacket and original plain card protective slip case.

The book begins with the origins and history of the company, biographies of the company’s founders, details of Patek Philippe’s inventions & patents relating to wristwatches, the history of the wristwatch, and Patek’s development of the genre. There are summary tables with production numbers for some of the company’s most important wristwatches as well as movement serial number charts to help with dating individual watches. The vast majority of the book, 167 pages in fact, are devoted to lavish illustrations in both colour and black and white showing the extraordinary variety and, of course, outstanding quality of this famous watchmaker. Many of the images are original archive photographs and include pieces from the company’s museum, there are also photos of wristwatches in private hands – some of which have, since publication in 1988, been purchased for the museum. Numerous important wristwatches made by Patek Philippe are illustrated in detail, including, cases, dials and movements.

An absolutely essential addition to the library of anyone with a passion for watches.
