This book traces the history of the machinemade watch from 1850 onwards, when prices dropped and the watches became available to the public at large. As well as considering the mainstream developments in Europe, America and the Far East, the author tackles new ground in a detailed examination of the companies that pioneered the new methods and dealt with the problems of manufacturing small, interchangeable parts. For the collector, there is advice on repair, plus an introduction to the development of electric and electronic watches. Full references are provided to enable readers to pursue their own interests further, plus a wealth of helpful diagrams and fascinating photographs, Essential reading for all watch enthusiasts!
