Description
 
"Ive paged through stacks of books on the history of watches. . . . But I hadnt come across a book that actually moved me until I picked up A Man and His Watch. The volume is filled with heartfelt stories."
--T: The New York Times Style Magazine

"There are a bunch of beautifully illustrated watch books out there, but A Man & His Watch by Matt Hranek is more than that. It speaks to the nature of watches as deeply personal items."
--Gear Patrol, Coffee Table Books Our Staff Cant Live Without

Paul Newman wore his Rolex Daytona every single day for 35 years until his death in 2008. The iconic timepiece, probably the single most sought-after watch in the world, is now in the possession of his daughter Clea, who wears it every day in his memory. Franklin Roosevelt wore an elegant gold Tiffany watch, gifted to him by a friend on his birthday, to the famous Yalta Conference where he shook the hands of Joseph Stalin and Winston Churchill. JFKs Omega worn to his presidential inauguration, Ralph Laurens watch purchased from Andy Warhols personal collection, Sir Edmund Hillarys Rolex worn during the first-ever summit of Mt. Everest . . . these and many more compose the stories of the worlds most coveted watches captured in A Man and His Watch. Matthew Hranek, a watch collector and NYC mens style fixture, has traveled the world conducting firsthand interviews and diving into exclusive collections to gather the never-before-told stories of 76 watches, completed with stunning original photography of every single piece. Through these intimate accounts and Hraneks storytelling, the watches become more than just timepieces and status symbols; they represent historical moments, pioneering achievements, heirlooms, family mementos, gifts of affection, and lifelong friendships.
