Overall, nice book to read, several interesting information but many watches lack photos of movement or even the back side, also there could have been more technical information about each watch (diameter, lugs width, bph etc.). And the photos are black and white only. But of course, for this price, it is to be expected.

The Concise Guide to Military Timepieces is exactly what the title says: a concise guide to military timepieces.

The descriptions and marking guides are good and informative. There's not much to complain about there. Many of the images, however, are very poor and seriously drag down the quality of this book. The book is a great coffee-table book or will look nice in your workshop's bookshelf.
Decent book overall.
3 stars.
