4.0 out of 5 stars Old pocket watches explained 13 Aug. 2002
By misterbeets - Published on Amazon.com
The focus is on antique European pocket watches, especially British ones, this being a British publication. The technical history of watches is thoroughly covered, the various outdated watch mechanisms--verge, fusee, cylinder escapement--are explained, and interesting footnotes are included, like the wage records from a 19th century watch shop. A chapter on repair will get you started, and even tell you how to restore the blueing on the watch hands (heat them in a tray over an alcohol lamp). The author has spent much of his life studying and collecting old watches, and has produced an easy-to-read guide filled with interesting and useful information.

If you just have a casual interest in mechanial watches or really want to learn their inner workings this is a great book for you. Well-illustrated and explained I found it very helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 26 Jun. 2014
By Anthony David - Published on Amazon.com
This book is fantastic, and perfect for my still-somewhat-novice status as a watch collector and designer.

I did buy a used copy elsewhere for 9 bucks, but it wasn't easy to find so I consider myself lucky on that front. Worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars People can put out better looking product from their home these days 7 Aug. 2014
By Latro - Published on Amazon.com

A book that show its age. People can put out better looking product from their home these days. Old balck and white photos
and archaic drawings with boring text is what you'll find.
