Culture Watch
The Ultimate Guide

As our pockets become digitized thanks to cellphones, fewer people are strapping on watches because they actually need to know the time. Yet funnily enough, this functionality being usurped by newer technology has exploded the market for wrist-bound time-pieces, as they increasingly become fetishized fashion accessories and prized collectors’ treasures. Horology—the art and science of measuring time—is the specialty of Fabienne Reybaud, the author of Watches: The Ultimate Guide (Assouline). This updated version of her popular how-to volume on navigating the watch world will prove invaluable to those looking to give—or receive—this piece of jewelry.
