This is the industry standard on wrist and pocket watch values. If you are expecting a book with pretty pictures and other fluff, this is NOT the book for you. This is the book if you are looking for a brief history on thousands of watch brands, as well as identification and current values of the literally billions of "collectable" watches produced.

This volume is HUGE! It contains an unsurpassed amount of data on classic watches, but the buyer should know that the data starts for watches at around 40 years or more or age and older. Even so, the information in evaluating a watch is timeless and what you want to see in a classic antique watch is still what you need to know for the more modern watches if you are trying to determine a value. Good job!

This is the reference guide for identification and used watch values. I've been using this book for over 25 years. They update it every year. The reference section is also helpful.

I am a professional watchmaker and i can say that this book gives great incite information on so many watches that it would take a watch enthusiast many days of research ( if not weeks). Definitely educational and interesting for amateur as well as a watch collector. I got one more for a friend and will keep on getting the new issues every time they come out. Arrived on time and well packaged.

There are some many auctions out there, and this book is perfect for identifying watches new and old. It's very easy to use and within minutes you can get an idea of the authentic markings on about any collectible watch. It's highly informative and although the prices change with what's popular at the time, this book gives any buyer/seller a great starting point.

If you have an old pocket watch with a make and serial number, then you can use this book to find out the date it was manufactured and the value. It is a reference book and these books come out once a year for watch dealers. It does what it was intended to do very well...but there is no plot.

I'm not sure why people are harping about the pictures. They're black and white and you can see them just fine. If they were all in color the book would have been 5 times as expensive. It's not a family album it's a reference book for watch prices! I find the book to a good source of info.

Thorough & very helpful resource to newcomer. Photos extremely useful. Reading the intro is essential in understanding the business, identification & value of watches. Loved being able to identify dealers & sources of more information.
