Selected Books for Watch Enthusiasts and Collectors
We are often asked where to find information about vintage and antique watches and their values. If you are a watch collector, or a watch enthusiast with a desire to learn more about the history or current market value of an antique watch, or if you have a desire to get involved in the fascinating hobby of watch collecting, then we recommend that you start your investigation with one or more of the following books. These books have been personally selected by our watchmaker as being particularly useful and informative.
The first book on our list, "The Complete Price Guide to Watches," is published annually and is one of the authoritative sources for information on vintage watch prices. Its focus is primarily American watches, but it has a section on European watches as well. It is an excellent book with a wealth of information on vintage watches. Every watch collector should own a copy, and we highly recommended it.
We do not sell these books directly, but for the convenience of our customers clicking on the "Purchase Book" link will take you to Amazon.com, where all of these books are available.
