[EAN: 9780715314616], [PU: David & Charles Publishers], HOROLOGY, THINGS PAUL WOULD LIKE, TIME PIECES, WATCHES, WATCH, GENE STONE, POCKET HUSBAND, CLOCKS, TECHNOLOGY, WATCH REPAIR, Technology|Technical & Manufacturing Industries & Trades, Antiques & Collectibles|Clocks & Watches, The author of Watch Collector's Handbook and Pocket Watch Handbook now provides watch collectors and jewelers with a solid general introduction to the history of mechanically made watches since 1850. A brief overview of pre-1850 watchmaking techniques sets the scene for the development and use of the Swiss jeweled lever escapement and interchangeable mechanical parts popular since 1950. The impact of World War II on European watchmakers, the effect of Timex watches in 1952 on Swiss and English manufacturers, and the rise of Oriental manufacturers are all discussed, with major attention given to the history of English, Swiss, and American watchmakers. Manufacturing principles and a summary of electronic watches completes the historical survey. This is rather dry reading, and it lacks an identification and price guide, but it provides excellent background material for those interested in the field. Size: 7 x 10"
