Mr De Carle (who died not so long ago at almost 100 years of age - if memory serves) was an old time watch repairer of rare and consummate skill. Not only that, he had the ability to write about his skills in a most lucid style. This volume is one of the results of that ability and will help the aspiring watch-repairer greatly.
In one of his books, writing of the English Lever watch, he said that the English Lever deserved a book to itself. It is a matter of great regret to both me and a good number of others that he never got round to writing that book. All the more reason to cherish those, such as this, that he did write.

A recommended read for anyone embarking on watch repairing. Detailed information that is not to be found anywhere else.
A useful book for the collector as well.

Bought this book as a gift for my husband who is a professional horologist. He has said it's a great reference especially for the more unusual watches.

It is a nice book but as the title suggests complicated. If you are a novice do not start with that, because it is not from the basics.
