The Watch is a survey of the best vintage and contemporary men's wristwatches that is as visually compelling as it is informative to read. A well-made man's wristwatch combines inspired design, technical innovation, and precise craftsmanship. Vintage watches are filled with sentiment and history, and are often passed from wrist to wrist across generations. Today, designers use cutting-edge techniques and materials to create some of the most complex miniature machines ever attempted. Ranging from Patek Philippe and Rolex to Seiko and Swatch, and covering fifty brands in depth, the book provides essential wisdom on buying, collecting, and maintaining these timepieces. Illustrating the text are more than 500 photographs of men's watches, including remarkable details of dials and movements, selected for their beauty and diversity from collections around the world.

Gene Stone, who has been a Peace Corps volunteer, a screenwriter and a journalist, as well as a book, newspaper and magazine editor, has spent the last five years researching the watch business. The author of more than twenty-five books and an avid watch collector, he writes a column on watches for Travel + Leisure GolfMagazine.
