A Man and His Watch: The World's Most Iconic Watches and Stories from the Men Who Wore Them

"Every watch tells a story" might sound like an old cliché, but in A Man and His Watch, author Matt Hranek proves that when it's true, the results are something special. Speaking with people from diverse careers and with different horological interests, the author introduces us to an artist who's been wearing the same digital watch for 20 years, a race car driver with a small collection of trophy watches from his storied career, and a chef whose prized timepiece was a special anniversary gift. What ties all of these men together is that the watch they put on their wrist each day carries immense personal significance and is a small totem of who they are, where they have been, and where they hope to go.

Through the stories of the watches – and with photographer Stephen Lewis's big, beautiful images – we get small, insightful biographies of the characters who own them. If you're someone who is as interested in the provenance of a watch as you are in the caliber number, this is a perfect book for you. To enjoy it, you don't need to know a balance wheel from a mainspring. It's an engaging reminder that at the end of the day it's the stories we imbue our watches with that give them meaning well beyond the gears and pinions that keep them ticking.
