For the watch collector, Abbeville Press’ Wristwatch Annual 2009 allows a flip through over 1,7000 watches in a central location. The book covers changes in mechanics and aesthetics, new limited editions and all the major producers. For ease of use, the annual is devised alphabetically based on producer name. It is edited by Peter Braun, also editor of Armbanduhren.
