Bought this to accompany the book by the same author on Clock Repairing. Also I have a small collection of quality watches I'd not dare try and fix myself.
it's nice to understand the craft even if you don't dare pull your Tag Monaco to bits, understanding the evolution of watches and how accuracy is obtained makes the wearer just appreciate what they have more. Maybe you'll even take better care as a result.
An old book now but the mechanical watches haven't really changed and although the writing style does show it's age with lectures on a service persons decorum, attitude to the customer, respect of tools, honesty and diligence....if only we all cared about customer service as much as Donald appears to.
So even if you don't think you will be repairing your watch I'd recommend this to any Watch fanatic with a technical mind.
