Passion. The sentiment expressed by Osvaldo Patrizzi when he talks of his watchmaking collection, the timepieces that he appraises or the works that he publishes, including the famous Patrizzi Pocket Expert series. This pocket-sized collection aims to offer collectors a summary and an exhaustive overview of the most important pieces in watchmaking.
After the Tourbillon with Gold Bridges, Osvaldo Patrizzi and his team of experts turned to another Girard-Perregaux icon, the ww.tc (world-wide time control) which has made its name as an essential reference among watches that display world times. The book also recounts the invention of universal time from Copernicus' ingenious heliocentric system to the universal standardisation of time.
Patrizzi Pocket Expert ww.tc is available in English/French and may be ordered online at www.opatrizzi.com. ■
