The Theory of Horology

Check price at


We are including The Theory of Horology as it is often referenced as one of the key textbooks on watchmaking. And indeed, it is a WOSTEP textbook. However, keep in mind that The Theory of Horology is just that, a book on the principles of watchmaking theory. It isn’t a book that provides a description of how to repair or a service a watch, however, and is best used in conjunction with a class or other more practical texts.

The text may be too technical for beginners, and if you are looking for a step-by-step guide on how to repair a watch, this isn’t it. If, however, you are more interested in theory and design, and how it relates to construction, look no further.
