The Millennium Watch Book Tourbillon Edition

Last year’s The Millennium Watch Book from GMT Publishing becomes a collection, released between now and 2030

While there are many reasons why 2021 is proving to be anything but an ordinary year, as watch enthusiasts, we like to think of it as the 220th anniversary of the invention of the tourbillon. Last year, for our own 20th anniversary and that of GMT, we published The Millennium Watch Book, and were inundated with compliments and words of encouragement. We are now transforming this cult reference work into a ten-volume collection, to be released at a rate of one volume per year between now and 2030. Each volume will cover a different theme, such as chronographs or dive watches. Make room on your bookshelves! First in this new collection is The Millennium Watch Book – Tourbillons, bringing you everything you need to know about tourbillon watches since the year 2000. Watch Club members have already been informed and were first to benefit from pre-orders at a preferential rate.

A numbered and limited edition

For the fastest and most enthusiastic watch fans, we are offering a limited edition of 220 numbered copies, with an exclusive foreword by Emmanuel Breguet, a direct descendant of Abraham-Louis Breguet, inventor of the tourbillon. As a WorldTempus reader, we invite you to go behind the scenes of this fascinating complication, learn more about manufacturers large and small, and discover the 50 iconic models, as well as the ones that have fetched the highest prices at auction or carried off the most prestigious awards, in 200 superbly illustrated pages. Order your numbered copy (at the same price as the standard edition when published) here. It will be released this autumn.

As with last year’s best-seller, The Millennium Watch Book – Tourbillons is the work of highly regarded specialists who have contributed their expertise to the various chapters, as well as an illustrator to bring an additional angle to their insight. Needless to say, we intend this new collection to be informative and entertaining. Those who don’t yet have their copy of The Millennium Watch Book, volume 0, released in 2020, can get one here.
