Fascination Of Timekeepers And Motor Sports 1960s 1970s

I slightly niche interest I'll grant you; but a fabulous book nonetheless. It was launched at Techno Classica Essen this year and is a real treat. A catalogue of Heuer watches from the 60s and 70s which might sound a little dry but this is a beautifully produced book that also relays the story behind the Heuer company and how it has became synonymous with motorsport.

Of course all the great watches are featured but there are also many many pictures of the drivers of the times wearing the different models and these really give a great period feel. I'd highly recommended this even if you are just slightly interested in the watches and of course there are a few pictures of the Heuer Monaco as worn in the film Le Mans by a certain film star. The book web site is here.
