[DOWNLOAD^^][PDF] The Wristwatch Handbook A Comprehensive Guide to Me…Despite the functional obsolescence of the mechanical wristwatch our phones and computers tell more accurate time the early 21st Century has seen a boom in the development, production, and appreciation of all things horological. Whether it is presented to the collector as an alternative investment, as a feat of micro-mechanical technology, or as a showcase of artisanal mastery, the mechanical wristwatch has never possessed more forms, functions or facets than it does today. The Wristwatch Handbook is written from the epicentre of a renaissance, a place in time between the Quartz revolution and the rise of the smart device - where the mechanical wristwatch is the antidote to the microprocessor and the permanent buzz of your inbox. From the multi-axis tourbillion, to the split-second chronograph, to the sidereal sky chart, The Wristwatch Handbook covers it all and does so with more than rich illustrations from over 90 of the World's leading brands. The book is separated into two sections.

T he Wristwatch Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide to Mechanical Wristwatches is a newly released book designed to be your map and compass to the world of watches. Hardbound, with pages and images from more than 90 brands, it goes where no book has gone before: to the precious space between horological tome and coffee table eye confectionary. The Wristwatch Handbook is written by Ryan Schmidt, who in addition to being a watch enthusiast and regular commenter on many an online forum, including aBlogtoWatch, also happens to be me. Not surprisingly I am something of an authority when it comes to talking about myself and what makes the book so special. It is therefore my great privilege to be doing a bit of both today.
