    Hi @Edfra, i can recommend you "Omega - A Journey through Time".
    However you will probably have to look for used one. I managed to find one which was still sealed for ~250 EUR.
    Its over 800 pages and 4kg heavy, is a great reference book for vintage watches.

    Moonwatch Only is only good for a limited selection of Speedmaster's. For all the other countless models it is useless. A Journey Through Time is a much, much better all rounder

    and this one by John Goldberger (can't remember)
    [​IMG]

    and by Isnardi (peronally it is not my favorite)
    [​IMG]

    And by Anton Kreuzer (never had it in my hands)
    [​IMG]
    And of course - but just for the pics - the Antiquorum Omegamania catalogue (bought it cheap a long time ago. Its way too expensive now)

    For a quick reference there is an app too, but not even half the information than in the book.

    Can anyone recommend a book on watch complications? I would really like to learn the details of what makes one better than another.

    Until it saves you from a big mistake, then it is crazy cheap.

    I don't know of a single, (or married) serious collector that doesn't reference this book.

    I just recently acquired Moonwatch Only as a birthday gift, so happy that I stumbled upon this thread to find other books I can look into purchasing

    I wonder if Omega Designs and A Journey Through Time have plenty of cal 320 action (story and images)?
