Following the success of The Pocket Watch, which has helped many people rescue old watches from the drawers in which they have languished, sometimes for years, Chris Barrow has produced another clear and concise guide, aimed again at the enthusiastic amateur. This book combines a fascinating history of the development of the verge pocket watch with a comprehensive step-by-step guide to cleaning and repairing a variety of English and Continental verge movements. If you have a verge pocket watch hidden in a drawer and would like to investigate its workings, perhaps with a view to getting it going again, this book will help you to reach that goal. It will also give you a deeper appreciation of the beauty of both the design and technology of the verge pocket watch.
