Here something special has been issued!Together with the reference books written on IWC by Toelke and King, by Meis and by Helmut Mann, this is the 4th reference book on IWC watches, completely dedicated to the Jones P.W.'s. It is an extraordinary historical and scientific work, completed by 3 extraordinary authors, one being the enthousiastic museum curator (D.S.), another being the best historical writer on IWC watches for years ( T.K.) and last but not least a professional academic biologist, who after retirement wanted to know everything on the Jones watches made by IWC (A.M.).I do know what it means to write about historical IWC watches, I do know the difficulties and the pitfalls. I do know the efforts to get data, to verify data and to ask people ( experts) for their opinion.Writing such book is a struggle to the utmost, but at the end a pleasure and a relief.From this perspective the "Jones Book" is precious gift to those IWC collectors, interested in the IWC history.The authors have done a great job!Kind regards,Adrian,(alwaysiwc).
