precision and beauty,
This review is from: Watchmaking (Hardcover)
George is a one off in that he is both an exceptionally skilled craftsman and and artist but is also so obviously unselfish in his willingness to share his creative inventions in the field of horology with the masses
The book is beautifully written and detailed even to the extent of illustrating in very clear terms for those with an understanding of intermediate mathematics,of how a clockwork precision timepiece actually works.
The insight into his workshop and the tools and metal working machinery he uses to fashion such original and beautiful watches is illustrated as an additional complement to the instruments themselves of which a number of delightful colour plates adorn the interior of the book.
All in all a delight to hold read and learn from.
