By George Daniels

A very big book, filled with incredible detail. An in-depth look at the practice of watchmaking. A classic — “one of the definitive texts on horology”.

It’s filled with lots of awesome diagrams and photographs, and there’s beauty in the details; each part simple but together, assembled, lavish.

It seems comprehensive, far beyond a casual exploration, but apparently is not overly technical; the author’s aim is to “inspire and encourage the art of watchmaking, especially among a new generation of enthusiasts.”

It covers: workshop and equipment, hand tools, materials, turning, jewelling, escapements, movement design, casemaking, and plenty more!
