Text in both Italian and English. "This volume is addressed to fans but also to special collectors. It is a guide to permit you to proceed logically in the Swatch 'collection.' A book that can give you advice and above all it can help you, with the necessary details, to recognize small or big tricks during a possible good deal. It is always very difficult to do a guide to avoid 'swindles,' also becaouse cunning minds never stop, but to have some landmarks can help a lot especially if you are a new collector. In few words a book that wants to give you assistance in buying and estimating correctly, essential elements to strengthen the big club of the Swatch collectors. This guide is designed for all people, from little fans to the collectors group called at 'complete-catalogue,' a restricted elite that you can count with your hands, and obviously to traders ... The quotations are the result of the trend of the most important auctions and of the evalutations of the greater experts and Swatch collectors in the world." - quotation from the Preface.
