Description

What is a beautiful watch? How do you make a good choice? “The Magic of Watches” explains how and why these little objects are so precious, fascinating and exciting. The Magic of Watches loves paradoxes: why a one-million-dollar watch might be less precise and more fragile than one that costs 15 dollars. The Magic of Watches comes back to the origins of the measurement of time: how did we go from the water clock to the wristwatch? The Magic of Watches dares to speak about technique: how does a mechanical movement work? How does a quartz watch work?

The Magic of Watches delves into details: what is a “complication” and when do we speak about “chronometer”? The Magic of Watches likes art: how do we enamel a dial? The Magic of Watches is unique: it focuses in detail on the basics in order to understand and love watches better.
