With a foreword from Jean-Marie Schaller, founder and creative director of Louis Moinet, this book introduces some of the most elegant watches the horological world has to offer, including several one-of-a-kind pieces that have never before appeared in print. Many of these ateliers handcraft both the watches and their complicated mechanical movements in-house. The level of expertise and craftsmanship involved is truly dazzling. Featuring such stunning timepieces as the 15.48 Driver Watch, the Andreas Strehler Time Shadow and the Antoine Preziuso Chronometer, Tourbillon of Tourbillons, this expertly curated collection of watch profiles will catch the eye of any true enthusiast. Steve Huyton looks beyond the price tag, featuring affordable options of particular artistic merit as well as pieces from the luxury end of the scale. Discover the hidden gems of the watchmaking business - 60 independent artisans counted among the finest makers in the world. Includes the work of: Hajime Asaoka, Felix Baumgartner (Urwerk), Aaron Becsei, Vincent Calabrese, Konstantin Chaykin, Bernhard Lederer (BLU), Masahiro Kikuno, Vianney Halter, Antoine Preziuso and Andreas Strehler, among others.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The book... was drawn from an initial list of about 150 watchmakers that Mr. Huyton said were chosen for their originality and included his personal favorites. Of those who made it into the final volume, some follow family tradition, like Aaron Becsei of Bexei, a third-generation watchmaker based in Budapest who creates tourbillon designs. Others decided to go solo after working for large brands, like Remi Maillat, 35, who left Cartier and created his own Swiss brand, called Krayon.' Melanie Abrams, The New York Times
