Retro Watches – The Modern Collector’s Guide
Described by the authors as ‘A modern collector’s guide to a world of outlandish retro watches‘, this book focuses on avant-garde watch models from the 1950s to the 1970s. Pieces produced during this period often surprise with their combinations of outlandish cases, unusual materials and innovative dial displays. Post-war modernism, the influence of quartz and the space age era all pushed watch design to ever greater extremes. Many of the pieces shown are classics that have been largely forgotten.
Over 100 affordable avant-garde watch models detailed and illustrated.
