Summary, etc.:
"Celebrate the enduring relationship between a man and his watch. Paul Newman's Rolex Daytona, a gift from his wife, Joanne Woodward. Astronaut Waly Schirra's Omega Speedmaster, which became the first watch to travel the moon. The gold Submariner that Sylvester Stallone bought when he knew he'd made it. Nas's gold Patek Philippe, an expression of his singular style. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual that Sir Edmund Hillary wore when he summitted Everest. Whether it's a timepiece at the pinnacle of artistry and precision or a simple watch layered with sentimental value, there's always a story."--Back cover.
