This is the first illustrated guide devoted specifically to the highly collectable field of military watches and clocks. Detailed descriptions are given of more than 150 distinct models issued over the past century to the armed forces of Britain, the United States, Germany, France, Russia, Italy, Holland, Canada, Czechoslovakia and Japan. Each description includes a guide to current price ranges; and the book includes an illustrated guide to some 160 identification markings to be found on the military timepieces of the above nations, plus Spain, Sweden, Austro-Hungary, Poland, China, Chile and Peru. This book will be an invaluable reference for horologists at every level of expertise; and will prove particularly useful to collectors of average means, whose imaginations are captured by their dramatic historical associations. AUTHOR: Zygmunt M (Ziggy) Weslowski is the son of a former combatant with the Polish 2nd Corps. Struggling to make a post-war living, Zygmunt senior supplemented his income by repairing watches and young Ziggy would spend hours watching in fascination. In later years Ziggy became interested in military antiques. His enthusiasm grew and with it his frustration at the lack of published reference to support his research. The publication of Concise Guide to Military Timepieces is a long-held ambition, and it is hoped his shared passion will inspire readers in both militaria horological circles to accord military timepieces the acknowledgement for which they are long overdue. 275 b/w photos
