“This is one of those rare men’s style books — or at least men’s style adjacent — that’s smart, but also accessible. It does a wonderful job of distilling what makes watches special without making the casual reader feel like an outsider. The Watch is something that both collectors and neophytes can enjoy, which is why it’s been one of the bestselling books on this subject for over a decade.” — Put This On.com
