A good collections requires a Library. Upon the request of Alex, few pics of

my two bookcases which I got made by a carpenter. Its not just the watches that are expensive. :-) Now I think I will need two more as well.


Well said

Congrats on your new bookcases, very nice!

Being bibliophilist, I sympathize with your need, well done yes

Which horological books do you reference most often?

From time to time we have "recommended reading" posts which attract a great deal of interest.  Can you share the watch books you find most interesting?

a bespoke Libary too!!!

Thanks guys for your replies. I actually underestimated the size requirement

when I got these made. These are in my home in India. Now I am currently in Singapore, where my mini-library here is growing too, and ultimately I will need a much larger bespoke bookcase. 

Tick-Talk, I so far have books I have received from VC, selected catalogues (PP ad ALS), the entire range of VC catalogues since 2003, and a few books I have purchased, such as Wrist-watch annual. I have gone through everything time to time.

Recently I attended a Blancpain event where they gave out two awesome books on their deep-sea diving adventures and a rare fish - Coelacanth. Very collectable.

VC Singapore also gave me Antiquorom auction catalogue 2005 250th anniversary.

I am waiting for Alex's latest book on the Harmony Chrono calibers.

I have two books on my Amazon wishlist - not sure if they are worth buying though. They are Wristwatches by Brunner and Belli and Wristwatches: The Models that made an age by Vecchi and Uglietti.

Any suggestions welcome.

Apart from the books, all I need now is another lovely watch (VC or ALS), a wardrope and shoes like Alex, excellent Wine and Cigars, and excellent Horophile company...:-)
