Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Widely regarded as one of the most famous and useful encyclopedias on watch- and clock-making, this eleventh edition of the regularly updated guide was first published in 1907. This is the final edition Britten completed before his death in 1913, and it is full of classic information on tools, repairs, terms, and definitions. Brittens book is the only place to get invaluable information on watch- and clock-making techniques and technology of the early-twentieth century and be-fore.

The Watch and Clock Makers Handbook, Dictionary, and Guide is an important resource for hobbyists, artists, antique dealers, history buffs, students, and horologists—amateur and professional alike.
