A Man & His Watch - Workman PublishingAnd for that I loved it! Not to mention the stunning and stark photography of the watches pictures against jet-black backgrounds. The book comes encased in a very attractive and thick rigid cardboard cover. It features a Rolex Daytona owned by the legendary Paul Newman. But look a little closer and something special is happening there…. The cover image is embossed with the key outlines of the watch from the case, to the hands, and even oyster bracelet links.
