About Time, by Ivar Hauge Line, pub­lished by Schif­fer

Plaza Watch International - - Books -

The au­thor of this cel­e­bra­tory book started col­lect­ing watches when he was 15, and now has more than 250 of them. What is in­ter­est­ing about his per­spec­tive, how­ever, is that he is less in­trigued by the minu­tiae of move­ments – note to watch man­u­fac­tur­ers: not many men are – as the wider cul­tural rel­e­vance of time­pieces. So his book in­cludes es­says on the re­la­tion­ship be­tween watches and cars, watches and space, in films and fash­ion – in other words, watches as pop cul­tural arte­facts. He also of­fers his list for the top ten ul­ti­mate watches for any col­lec­tor. He doesn't ex­plain why he's ac­crued an­other 240.
