Riassunto: A revised and updated edition of "The Watch Collector's Handbook", this practical guide to all aspects of collecting and repairing watches is designed to provide both beginners and established collectors with all the information they need to pursue their interest with knowledge and confidence. Max Cutmore begins this edition with an in-depth historical survey of watches and watchmaking, from the very earliest 14th-century designs right up to the late 1990s. He examines the technology and manufacture of all types of watches, including cheap mechanical designs, electronic watches, the modern wrist watch and Swiss pocket watches. Based on his own practical experience, the author then offers collectors detailed advice on exactly what to look for and the pitfalls to avoid, and includes a step-by-step assessment guide to use when making a purchase. Basic instructions are also provided on repair work, identifying lines of approach and essential tools and materials.
