Millennium Watch Book

Following last year’s success of the Millenium Watch Book, Swiss publisher Brice Lechevalier of GMT publishing is producing a collection of ten additional volumes until 2030, with a new volume to be published every year. The concept of The Millennium Watch Book is to sum up – in 300 pages and 20 chapters – everything you need to know about watchmaking since the year 2000. Following the inaugural edition, the first thematic sequel will be a monograph celebrating tourbillon watches.

The Millennium Watch BookThe Essential of Tourbillons since 2000 looks back at the roots of Abraham-Louis Breguet’s invention, its contemporary history and the evolution of its technology, while also focusing on 50 must-have tourbillon watches. Like the inaugural edition, this new opus is a collective work assembled by and written in collaboration with international watch experts – our Swiss Editor Xavier Markl is once again one of the writers to have contributed to this beautifully illustrated book.

More details on where the 2021 Millenium Watch Book can be ordered via subscription at an early-bird price of CHF 99 (until the end of August).

  1. Una noticia excelente. En esta era digital cada vez se le da menos valor al libro impreso

  2. A monumental series like this should be planned for well ahead of the publication. Why the categories after 2022 are treated like a mystery?
