For much of the world, summertime means vacation time. And that means digging into a good book.
If you’re looking for a fun work of fiction with a serious watch theme to take on your holidays, you might want to go for ‘The Grand Complication’ by Allen Kurzweil.
International scholar Kurzweil personally researched the circumstances of the legendary theft, with his website reporting that he “spent nearly five years crisscrossing Europe and the Middle East, interviewing detectives, curators, horologists, and watch dealers.”
His diligence paid off: ‘The Grand Complication’ is a quick read, steeped not only in the legends of modern watchmaking, but also appealing to bibliophiles with its many references to literature and libraries.
