All wristwatches are true 'micromarvels' of engineering, yet some models have such enduring appeal that they attract the attention of collectors, investors and regular wearers alike. Now available in paperback for the first time, Cult Watches is a lavishly illustrated account of the world's most popular classic timepieces - the top 30 that have achieved cult status, from the Rolex Submariner and the Tissot Banana Watch to the Ingersoll Mickey Mouse watches and the 'quartz revolution' Swatches. Watch-industry expert Michael Balfour introduces the great watchmaking innovators, sets their horological masterpieces in context and discusses their legacies. With future contenders for the status of cult watch also considered, this is a lively and informative history of some of the most sought-after and desirable watches ever produced.
