Watchmaking since 2000

Two decades in the history of watchmaking, 300 pages, 20 themed chapters, over 1,000 photos, written in collaboration with 25 international experts, over 12 months of work, 80 figures who have marked watchmaking since 2000, in an XXL format, limited edition… everything to be retained of watchmaking from 2000 to 2020, an unparalleled period in watchmaking history.

The Millennium Watch Book analyzes the latest technologies and new materials, but also the trends and the people who have played a major role in the creation of the watches, but also the second-hand market and the role of patents.

Which chronographs and technical materials have marked these two decades? What ten trends have emerged and why will the tourbillon never be the same again? What are the 20 watches that best symbolize each year and how have women’s watches evolved? How have bracelets changed and patents been used?

The Millennium Watch Book explores the rise of the independents, the use of silicon, and the explosion of pre-owned watches. It lists all the laureates of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) in all categories since it was founded in 2001, and you can read profiles of the 80 industry figures who have each, in their own way, indelibly marked contemporary watchmaking today.

The Millennium Watch Book is a must for industry professionals as well as for those who simply love beautiful watches.

With a cover created by one of the great watch designers of the 2000-2020 period, Eric Giroud.
