Hi All,

A photographic list of other books covering this subject; 17 titles.

156 pages / 321 color images / 103 timepieces reviewed.

Many thanks to all who contributed (photographs, time, advice, editing, etc.) - without which this project would have never come to fruition.
The concept of this project has always been a cross between the MWR calendar and Ziggy's ; not to be compared to Ziggy's, Knirim's, or Whitney's ! The following examples are provided to give a better idea of how the book is formatted:

The book comes in three different cover options - softcover, hardcover with dust jacket, and image wrap (this option is hardcover with images printed directly on the cover, much like a school textbook). Please note that the softcover and image wrap options will not include the cover "wings".

Please follow the link to purchase a copy:

If you have any quesions please feel free to contact me via PM - Thanks for looking and Kind Regards,
