Watch and Clock Making and Repairing is a handbook that should be close to every conscientious watchmaker's bench. First published over fifty years ago this authoritative work, based on a lifetime's practical experience, has been in continuous demand and is recognised as a classic work on the subject. Covering the basics, such as tools, equipment and materials, the principles of watch and clock movements, as well as more complex aspects, such as striking mechanisms and stop watches, this book is the definitive guide to watch and clock making and repairing. The construction of specialist tools for repair work, many of which were designed by the author, is explained in some detail and an appendix listing the various causes of failure and bad time-keeping is also included. Written in a straightforward style and with over 300 line drawings, this book has stood the test of time and remains relevant today.
