MOONWATCH ONLY. THE ULTIMATE OMEGA SPEEDMASTER GUIDE
(Ref 11045/Watchprint) by Grégoire Rossier and Anthony Marquié

Why a Collector’s Guide? The Speedmaster is a timeless watch icon that has significantly evolved since its creation in 1957, a fact that sometimes makes it hard to identify certain models, particularly older ones. After several years of research and observation, the authors have created a technical, systematically and attractive book intended to become the reference work for this model.

FIFTY FATHOMS, THE DIVE AND WATCH HISTORY 1953-2013
(Ref 11056/Watchprint) by Dietmar W. Fuchs, Jeffrey S. Kingston and Stephan Ciejka

The histories of Blancpain’s iconic Fifty Fathoms, the world’s first modern diving watch, and diving itself have been intertwined ever since 1953. It is, thus, fitting that Blancpain has brought these two stories together in a richly illustrated collectible.  Blancpain’s editors enlisted experts from both fields to chronicle the twin evolutions and milestones of underwater time keeping and exploration. The result is a comprehensive portrait of pioneers and inventors never before assembled in a single album. This volume with its unique compilation of materials has been conceived to become an authoritative historical resource for both divers and diving watch aficionados.
