Best of Watchville: Quill & Pad Book Review: ‘Retro Watches’

I find myself leafing through various coffee table or reference books on watches more and more often these days. They are a useful resource that allows me to take a break from the barrage of screens in my life. Being able to unplug and read up on various obscure watch references, or learn something about a brand I am not fully aquatinted with, is a really relaxing (and educational) experience. So, when I saw this article and book review from Quill & Pad come across the Watchville feed, I was immediately intrigued. 

The team over at Quill & Pad reviewed “Retro Watches” by Josh Sims and Mitch Greenblatt. The review showcases what looks to be a really interesting book on a segment of watches not often focused on in one single scholarly resource. In a time when taste can feel a tad bit ubiquitous, it is nice to see a spotlight shed on a more funky segment of vintage – or retro, as the case may be –  watch collecting. Retro is sort of an all-encompassing term, but when you see some of the variants from brands such as Jaeger-LeCoultre, Omega, and Zenith that this book highlights, I think it is a very appropriate descriptor. I am certainly intrigued to have a look at this book myself.
