The Reference Books on Watches.

OUR PROCESS MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

Designed to guide both connoisseurs and novices alike, the “ONLY” books have been an undeniable success since the first publication: MOONWATCH ONLY in 2014. Our readers have praised the original and rigorous methodology, derived from our scientific training, used to describe and analyze the models evolution over time. For this reason, the same approach has been applied not only to classical printed books, but also to electronic guides, free downloadable in-depth reviews, and advisory services.

Since a few years, transaction prices for vintage watches have increased significantly, and these exaggerations have resulted in strong speculation on spare parts too. Our main goals with the “ONLY” books and other projects are on one side to educate and create awareness among watch enthusiasts, and on the other side to provide collectors with the key elements they will need to conclude smart transactions.

TESTIMONIALS

It is an indescribable reference work and a true must-have for every Speedmaster collector.

Forbes

Moonwatch Only, absolutely the finest guide to Speedmaster on the planet.

Hodinkee

This book sets a new standard. Not only for books on the Omega Speedmaster, but for watch books in general. I’ve never seen anything like it, and believe me when I tell you that I could fill an impressive sized wall with books on watches. Authors of other books or publishers should take a look at Moonwatch Only as well to see how it should be done.

FratelloWatches

The authors, a Swiss biologist and a French aeronautical engineer used their scientific skills to write what is certainly the most definitive work about the Speedmaster [...] They created a methodology which not only makes this book an important reference for Speedmaster collectors around the world, but also for future watch book writers who could use Moonwatch Only as a template for other important watches [...] Moonwatch Only is certainly one of the best books ever written about a single watch model.

Timezone.com

A luxurious new tome detailing every model and attribute in the Speedmaster’s most famous lineage was a labour of love for its authors, and will be a bible for collectors.

QP Magazine

Moonwatch Only, released in 2014, sets a new standard for watch-related publications and instantly skyrocketed to the number 1 position on the Speedmaster publications chart – should such a chart have existed.

Speedy Watches

In this book, Speedmaster fans will have a single source that has been created to answer all of the questions they might have about their favourite chronograph.

TimeCrafters

Several years in the making, this new book becomes the indisputable reference for all Omega Speedmaster models.

Worldtempus

Actually, it is a true bible since it is made of around 500 pages full of information and technical data. But what I appreciated the most by browsing the book was its clever and sound organization.

PuristPro

With an introduction and written historical overview by Petros Protopapas (International Brand Heritage Manager of Omega) and Ilias Giannopoulos (journalist and watch expert), Flightmaster Only can definitely be considered as a validated source of information on the Flightmaster watches.

FratelloWatches

The authors followed the same format as their previous book Moonwatch Only to great effect. For any Flightmaster fans, this is the seminal work on the watch.

Hodinkee

[...] It’s not only the ultimate book on the iconic Omega Speedmaster, it’s also the perfect blueprint for a serious watch book.
