This vintage book contains a complete guide to contemporary methods and techniques employed in horology and clockmaking. It was originally designed for the edification of young watchmakers and contains a wealth of useful information presented clearly and in simple language. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in horology, and it would make for a useful addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Old and New Methods of Measuring Time", "Time Service of Today", "Iron and Steel", "Wheels and Pinions", "The Balance Staff and Its Measurements", "Jeweling", "Pivoting", "The Balance or Hair String", "The Lever Escapement", "The Main Spring", "The Compensating Balance and Pendulum", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of clocks and watches.
