Format: Hardcover
There are so many books availaible about clock repair that it's hard to imagine there being space for another. But this modest book has squeezed itself in amongst the greats.I am a professional horologist and consequently work alone most of the time. This book is my bible, it's like having an expert friend working at your side. I often wonder "What Mick would do", and regularly seek his advice. I have even revised practices which I have been using for years after stumbling across a photo or section of text whilst browsing.
This book with it's easy to understand text and clear illustration, is also highly recommended for students who are studying for the Britsh Horological Institute's professional accreditation. Mick Watters was a respected lecturer at St Loyes College in Exeter and his experience is wholly relevant.

I wanted a book that would not only instruct me on how to repair clocks, but also explain various aspects of the movement - this did all of those things. Brilliant

Reasonably up to date methods for amateur clock repairers to get going on a new hobby and maybe even a small business.

This is really not a book for the novice. The photographs, apart from the one on the cover, are very poor.
