History and heritage
Giving particular attention to the product – major brands of watches and writing instruments are historically present since the first edition, with a complete and accurate technical characterization of each model. In its on and offline editions, Anuário Relógios & Canetas, always devotes space to the history and heritage related to watchmaking and time, thereby extending the potential of reading beyond the universe of regular readers of specialized press.
A must for anyone who loves watches, like me. It is the only Portuguese magazine in the industry that is not linked to any distributor and therefore is the only truly independent.
