AUTOMATIC Wristwatches From Switzerland

The reason to buy this book is probably the "Automatic Catalog (by manufacturers)". Although the catalogue covers only movements until the late 70ies, it is a great reference. The watches are depicted from the front, the open back with and without rotor. Each manufacturer's movement history is summarized in a table.
Besides that catalog you will find a "History of the Automatic Wristwatch", a section about "Early Automatic Watches", the "Technology of the Automatic Wristwatch", "References", a detailed "Index" and "Price Guide" of all depicted watches.
