This book is some sort of corporate propaganda for Ebel Watches.

The book tries to draw metaphor between watch makers and architects. This is attempted by using a metaphor between Ebel's, somewhat nonstandard and architecturally interesting, head quarters and the watch making business that they do.

The book was pretty much nonsensical and exceptionally hard to follow. At first I figured that it must have been written in another language and (poorly) translated into English. But, I think that it is actually just that bad.

The art was uninspired and the only cool thing about this book is that it did creatively use a mixture of colored and black and white panels. (Which I imagine were because the budget for the book could only include so many colored panels.)

This book sucks, don't even bother.

I read this book because I got it on super sale, from Elliott Bay Book Company when they were moving from pioneer square to Cap Hill.
