Masters of Contemporary Watchmaking by Micheal Clerizo is a large and sumptuous book. Its publisher is Thames and Hudson, ISBN 978-0-500-51485-6 It has long well illustrated articles on George Daniels Sven Anderson Vincent Calabrese Phillipe Dufour Antoine Preziuso Frank Muller Aniceto Jiminez Alain Silberstein Marco Lang Vianny Halter Roger Smith with shorter pieces on Felix Baumgartner Aaron Becsei Nicolas Delaloye Paul Gerber Gruebel Forsey Richard Habring Bent Haldimann John and Stephan McGonigle Reiner Neinaber Thomas Prescher Daniel Roth Sepan Sarpeneva Peter Speake Marin Andreas Strehler Christiaan Van Der Klaauw Kuri Voutilainen Volker Vyskocil I had not heard of a lot of these but I very much enjoyed what I read. Some of these watchmakers were very candid and I formed a very negative opinion of a few of them. Their overwhelming conceit came through. I found I like most of them, at least as portrayed. More important the book is lavishly illustrated and, unlike a lot of what I call junk books, this has a lot of very detailed movement photographs which are very well done. While it is mostly wrist watches, several makers did pocket watches for school projects and these are well illustrated. I am not enough into contemporary watchmaking to know how significant these players are. I'd like to have seen a section on F. P. Journe and on RG Murphy but Its still a very fine book. For what it is the book is very well priced. At full price its a decent buy but at the discounts you can get from the better sellers its a must buy. I bought mine from a national book chain. The local store did not honor their internet mail order price so I bought it via mail order.
