Knjiga „Retro Watches“ The Modern Collectors’ Guide

4,000.00rsd

A popular collector’s guide to discovering the world of unusual, rare, and dazzlingly retro watches.

What you wear on your wrist can be more than merely functional. Eschewing the common categories of the “classics,” the ostentatiously high-priced, and the “blingy,” this book brings together individualist pieces that few have seen and even fewer own.

Retro Watches is a collector’s guide for those who want to make a statement with the watch they wear, but who are looking for something a little different. It collects the most intriguing, visually striking, and out-there watch designs from little-known but influential watch brands, along with overlooked but brilliant pieces from the major players. Over one hundred watch models are featured, specially photographed for the book and accompanied by accessible, informative texts discussing the watch’s design, history, and intriguing features, as well as info panels detailing rarity, value, and other key attributes. Additional breakout spreads dive into the cultural and fashion history of watch design and the many innovations of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s.

Beautifully presented, Retro Watches is the volume for the watch wearer who wants to stand out from the crowd.

Knjiga „The Beauty of Time“

8,500.00rsd

Lavishly illustrated, The Beauty of Time contains a selection of nearly two hundred wonders- from mechanical and pendulum clocks to pocket and wristwatches. The timepieces are annotated by an expert horology historian and accompanied by a text that elucidates the cultural and artistic contexts in which they were created. As a counterpoint to the timepieces, extensive reproductions of artistic masterpieces provide perspective regarding the technical advances of each period and demonstrate the evolution of aesthetic tastes over time. This unique book, an homage to a single instrument-so often conceived as a work of art- is intended as much for horology enthusiasts as for art and decorative-arts aficionados, history lovers, and collectors.
