Many authors have burned their fingers on the subject of “watches as an investment”. They are either paid PR books or commissioned writers who are paid twice by the watch manufacturer and the publisher.
When I first found out about the English book “Invest in Watches” – professional instructions for collecting watches – I was extremely skeptical at first, because in the past I had only seen printed PR rubbish financed by the watch brands themselves got. I also became aware of his position at Vacheron Constantin as Head of Digital Marketing & eCommerce and suspected a conflict of interest.
When Marc Montagne sent me a signed and personally dedicated review copy, I was still skeptical, the book was elegantly packaged and the package contained a sealed envelope.
In the following two evenings and nights I devoured the book and was amazed and enthusiastic.
“A good book cannot be judged by its last words alone, but by the combined effect of all the words that preceded it. About half a second after the reader has finished the book, having read the last word, he must feel author Marc Montagne’s passion for watches as a strong emotion washes over him. For a moment he doesn’t have to think about anything other than what he just read. A good book, a book to regret reading.”
There is no better way to describe this fantastic book than the wonderful author, Marc Montagne. The topic INVEST IN WATCHES – the way to collect watches professionally – has a clear and understandable structure and is well researched and prepared. You can feel the passion for watches in every line – on every page – beware of the risk of addiction.
Marc Montangne understands like no other how to captivate the reader and to really draw him into his book.
Rarely have I been so enthusiastic about a book, if I could I would give it 1000 stars!!!
