TIMEPIECES, A LIFELONG LOVE AND PASSION
AN INSIDER’S GUIDE TO WATCHES AND TIPS FOR WATCH COLLECTING BY LAURENT MARTINEZ
Throughout the years of collecting and selling, I have noticed many of the same questions being asked by newer members of the watch community looking to buy both contemporary and vintage watches. At the beginning of Covid, I realized it was the perfect time to write a book about watches to answer those questions.
My book was written with the budding collector in mind, emphasizing the history and design details of timepieces. More importantly, I offer plenty of tips for collectors to keep in mind—such as, how to tell the difference between a fake watch and a real watch—when building their collection. This is also my way of sharing the love and passion for watches I’ve had for the past 40 years. I have been blessed to meet wonderful people throughout my life, many of which share my affection for fine timepieces.
