From 1956, Donald de Carle’s Complicated Watches and Their Repair assisted watchmakers with the increasing popularity of automatics, day/date calendar, alarms, repeaters and chronographs. Each of these is addressed from the point of view of repair, and is clearly described and illustrated, with both a description of disassembly and assembly. de Carle also provides tips on how to diagnose faults and address
As always, de Carle provides step-by-step instructions, and Complicated Watches and Their Repair is very well illustrated so readers can follow along during the process. This book is well paired with de Carle’s Practical Watch Repairing, which provides an exceptional introduction to the basics of watch repair.
