Covering the later-than-usual period of 1800-1940, the book covers in depth every type of pocket watch produced, explaining in clear, uncomplicated language precisely what to look out for and, of equal importance, what to avoid. Unlike so many other books on horology, Pocket Watches in not concerned with largely unobtainable or outrageously expensive museum examples but concentrates on affordable watches which the reader is actually likely to come across in everyday situations.

Nothing escaped his attention, from alarm to late verge, everything the reader could ever want to know about pocket watches, whether English, American or Swiss, is contained here.
