This book is intended not only for those who already collect horological items but also those who have a general interest in what was truly man's first precision engineering. With nearly 2.000 separate entries the dictionary is extremely wideranging including everything the collector of clocks and watches would want to know. It explains the technical and specialist terms of the various parts and their functions in everyday language, and deals with most of the vast number of types and styles of clocks and watches produced over the years, with special attention to collectable ones. It lists the individuals who made important contributions to mechanical horology over its 600-year history, such as those exceptional men who invented and produced remarkable time-keepers.
