I may have mentioned this before, but I am a little bit of a watch-aholic. I have scores of watches, most I have not worn in years but I just need to have around. I love that watches, despite all the ways we have to tell time in the digital age (“hey Alexa what time is it”) they are still the perfect accessory for the well-dressed man. Which is why I love the opus to men and watches, A Man and His Watch by Matt Hranek.

About A Man and His Watch by Matt Hranek:

“A man has to be careful not to over-accessorize. Too many rings, necklaces, and cuffs and you lose the magic an expertly chosen accessory can provide. It’s why we’ve always gone to bat for the most timeless accessory there is: the watch. The men profiled in A Man and His Watch got it right. The 216-page, gorgeously shot hardcover is an ode to iconic watches and the men who wore them. Paul Newman and his Rolex Daytona are profiled, as are JFK and the Omega he wore at his inauguration, Nas and his Patek Philippe, and so many more. From author and watch collector Matt Hranek comes this beautiful coffee table book that’s filled with 76 captivating stories. We will warn you, however. You will want a statement timepiece of your own after you flip through this book.”

A Man and His Watch by Matt Hranek is available from Cool Materials (psyche!) and other fine retailers everywhere.
