Synopsis

The most reliable and convenient guide to watches available, the Complete Price Guide to Watches is a mini encyclopedia with over 10,000 watches priced and over 8,000 images provided for education and identification. This book is the definitive guide for all levels of watch education and collection. Featuring thousands of price changes every year, the Complete Price Guide to Watches contains the most up to date information on American and European pocket watches and wrist watches, comic watches, and character watches, including pricing, identification information, tips, history, terminology, and the annual market report. Accurate pricing is joined by historical information on a myriad of watchmakers. The guide also has dedicated illustrated entries on how a watch works, watch parts nomenclature, the individual parts of a watch movement, how to properly open a pocket watch, caring for your watch, railroad watch dials, cases and adjustments, determining the age and manufacturer, and appraising. All of this information is accented by antique illustrations salvaged and lovingly reproduced from long lost watch catalogs, advertisements, and brochures.

Because of this attention to detail the Complete Price Guide to Watches has attained near legendary status as the only true Bible of watch prices.
