Book Review: Vintage Watches, By Reyne Haines

April 6th, 2010 by

Twentieth Century Decorative Arts expert, Reyne Haines, has penned another great book, Vintage Watches.  This book was designed with something for everyone.  Not merely a catalog of various styles and makers of fine watches, this work contains over a thousand high quality photographs that will appeal to the new collector, seasoned expert and everyone in between.

Beautifully designed, this hard cover, coffee table styled work contains information on how to collect, the  backstory of American and Swiss watchmakers, a dictionary of wristwatch lingo and more.  It gives you a real look into the design and artistry that went into creating these fine timepieces.

Additionally, the collectable watches in this book are quite varied in price scale.  Whether you collect watches, appreciate the history or simply enjoy the beauty, artistry and craftsmanship behind them, you will find Vintage Watches a very enjoyable book.
