“Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World” is a comprehensive reference book of the most notable makers of clocks and watches in the world at the time when this book was first published. It is presented as a series of lists, each containing different information pertaining to the industry and the main companies involved in the manufacture of timepieces. Contents Include: “Conventions Abbreviations”, “List of Names with Alternative Spellings”, “List of Watch and Clockmakers”, “List of Initials and Monograms”, “List of Place Names”, “Maps”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on clockmaking.
