The Pocket Watch: Restoration, Maintenance and Repair

The Pocket Watch: Restoration, Maintenance and Repair Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using as examples six of the most typical types of watch from a period spanning the late 18th century to the early 20th century, the author takes the intelligent enthusiast through the cleaning and repair process, step by careful step, using photographs of excellent clarity, and in lucid language, characterized by his own friendly and helpful tone. He aims to equip the reader with a sound basic knowledge not just of the process but also all the tools and materials as well as their sources.

About the Author

A member of the British Horological Society, Chris Barrow has been an electronic design engineer for almost 30 years. He has been cleaning and repairing pocket watches for 20 years.
