Summary

The most reliable and convenient guide to watches available, the Complete Price Guide to Watches 2015 is the definitive guide for all levels of watch education and collection. From the amateur collector to the most prestigious auction houses, this guide has something for everyone. It not only provides accurate pricing on a plethora of watches and thousands of photographs for watch identification, it also offers historical information on a myriad of watchmakers, including company histories, movement identification, serial numbers, grade numbers, and production dates and quantities. All of this information is accented by antique illustrations salvaged and lovingly reproduced from long lost watch catalogs, advertisements, and brochures. It is because of this attention to detail that the Complete Price Guide to Watches has attained its near-legendary status as the go-to guide for all things watch-related.
