Until I could carve out a proper window of time to cozy up on my couch with a cup of tea and give the book a read, A Man and His Watch became a now-permanent fixture on my coffee table. I admired it every day. This book was not just meant to be read, it was meant to be displayed. If you judge a book by its cover, this one does not disappoint.

New Watches. From The Journal. Watch Finder. 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.

Simple, elegant, deeply compelling.
