    Dear colleagues, the first book-catalog devoted to the presentation pocket watches of Russian Empire is already published. I am one of the authors. This book describes the gift watches from the Russian tsars and the members of the Romanov dynasty.
    P.S. The second book-catalog will be devoted to the presentation watches of the Russian imperial army. You will get acquainted with more than 300 different pocket watches. It will be published at the end of 2011. The third book will describe the gift watches from the ministries, departments, homemade and modern fake pocket watches. Will be released in early 2012..

    It looks like a very nice book. However, although my father was born in old Russia (over 100 years ago), I do not read any Russian. Will there be an English-language edition or an English supplement?

    It is the 3d book of the series “Gift, presentation and prize pocket watches of the Russian Empire». The book describes award pocket watches of Russian Ministries, joint stock companies, charitable foundations, Frontier Guard, Customs Service etc. A big part of the book covers the modern fake pocket watches.

    Perhaps you might consider producing an English version in PDF that could be purchased on the Internet?

    Regards

    Sorry, unfortunately, I am not going to issue the books in English. However there are a lot of images in the books which help readers to understand the content meaning.

    I must fully suport the authpr/publisher here.

    These books aareso richly illustrated that even somebody who can not read a word in the cyrillic alphabet, but has an interest in (mostly Swissmade) Presentation watches designed specifically for the Russian MArket should definitively purchase these books.

    Dear colleagues,
    I am not sure it is allowed to refer to another website, sorry. I am a collector of Russian imperial award pocket watches, published 3 books. Now I put out small videos about such watches https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbO..._as=subscriber
    May be someone is interested to know more about Russian history, especially since there are a lot of rares and presented by Russian tsars or grand dukes. By today I have put out 6 series, and issue every week. I hope it will be about 40-50 series.
