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.

Great book on how watches work and are put together. It takes you through each part of a watch and shows how it works and what its role is. Very absorbing read

Nice looking book but did not reach expectations as diagrams were in black and white. The details in the book were for older type watches, nothing explaining newer or automatic wind watches. Not a book for a total beginner just learning about watch repairing.

A fascinating read; this book not only tells you how to repair watches, but also how to make parts the proper traditional way and to make your own tools. Reading this gives one a greater appreciation of the workings of mechanical watches, and the skill of those who have made them.

I really find this one a joy to read. It is well written, contains 100's of well drawn pictures to explain what it necessary and covers almost everything. It is written with amusing anecdotes and lots of pictures to explain the text.

A great reference book for starting horology
