A Guide to Complicated Watches

Description

Not usually at the short list of watch repair books, A Guide to Complicated Watches was published in 1945 (current edition was published in 2004) and remains one of the best works available on complications: adjustments to chronographs, minute recording, hour recording, independent seconds-beating and jumping seconds, repeaters, perpetual calendars and more. Written in a clear and direct manner with detailed illustrations, the guide can be used by novices as well as more experienced watchmakers.

The guide is a book version of a course by François LeCoultre on complicated watches from the Geneva School of Watchmaking in 1950.
