Sébastien Chaulmontet & Joël Pynson: Chronographs For Collectors Book Review

Sébastien Chaulmontet & Joël Pynson: Chronographs For Collectors Book Review Book Reviews

Truly great books on watchmaking are hard to come by – but when they do, they are an overwhelming expression of true passion for the subject matter. A prime example of this is a highly specialized book titled Sébastien Chaulmontet & Joël Pynson: Chronographs For Collectors. “For collectors” is no marketing stunt in the title either. Where books such as Ryan Schmidt’s The Wristwatch Handbook (reviewed here) or at least for the sake of self-intimidation, Watchmaking by George Daniels (reviewed here) are must-reads for novice watch lovers, some books are for the more seasoned enthusiasts… and Chronographs For Collectors is no different. The book, spoiler alert, is fantastic, so I thought I’d enliven this review by providing some background information, rather than merely a run-down of the publication.
