“I’ve paged through stacks of books on the history of watches. . . . But I hadn’t 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
“Awesome. . . . Contains dozens of beautifully photographed watches. The real joy, though, is found in the stories that unfold about each one.” —GQ.com
“The perfect holiday gift . . . this elegant book is a celebration of the longstanding love affair between a man and the clock on his wrist.” —Jetset magazine
“The watch through Matt Hranek’s lens is much more than a time-telling device; it’s a vehicle through which the men in A Man and His Watch tell their tales of achievement, love, and loss. This may be the first book to unlock not only why wristwatches remain the subject of such attention today, a generation after their purpose was lost to PCs and smartphones, but also why we began to cherish them so much in the first place.” —Benjamin Clymer, founder and executive editor of Hodinkee
