WATCH - history of the modern wristwatch

100% original and brand new book by Pieter Doensen

This is a must have reference book for collectors of Electric, LED, LCD and designers watches from the period 1950-1993. Pieter Doensen has written a comprehensive history of the of the designers watch from the pioneer work of the French manufacturer LIP up to the fashion houses of Cardin and Dior. "Watch" provides the well documented technical evolution of “collectible modern wrist watch” from the first electro-dynamic watch system developed by Hamilton in the early 1950’s up to the radio controlled watches of Junghans and the automatic quartz watches of Seiko and Jean d`Eve. Added are separate chapters for multi-functional watches and miscellanea such as for instance the race for the flattest watch. This book is a one of a kind that deals with rather the "non-mechanical" watches, it is packed with information, relevant details and illustrated with a large number of very clear photo's, mostly of watches from the authors own collection.
