Clock and Watch Repairing by Donald de Carle FBHI

£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Clock and Watch Repairing by Donald de Carle.

This profusely illustrated volume forms a step-by-step instruction manual on the repair of mechanical clocks and watches. The work begins with simple clocks and watches and proceeds to the more complicated types, and the tools and apparatus needed are described and illustrated. The clocks dealt with are mainly the more modern types of mechanical clock, but attention is given also to movements of the older long case and fusee types, as many of them are now being repaired as a result of the great interest shown in antique clocks. The chapters on watch repairing deal with chronographs and repeaters, as well as self-winding mechanisms. The latest developments in ultrasonic cleaning of horological movements and their electronic timing are described and illustrated.

About the Author:
Donald de Carle was a Fellow and Medalist of the British Horological Institute and a Freeman of the City of London by virtue of being a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Clock makers. Mr de Carle's earlier book, Practical Watch Repairing, has enjoyed a phenomenal success, running into many editions, and has been translated into several languages. He contributed to the Encyclopeadia Britannica and was the author of many other horological works including, The Watchmaker's and Model Engineer's Lathe, Complicated Watches and their Repair, Practical Clock Repairing, Watch and Clock Encyclopaedia, Clocks and their Value, Horology ('Teach Yourself Series'), Practical Watch Adjusting and Springing, Watches and their Value, etc. Donald de Carle died in 1989.

This hardback second edition published in 1981 by Robert Hale of London is in good condition. The binding is sound and all the pages are clean and unmarked. The top and bottom of the spine are slightly bumped and there is some foxing to the top of the pages and slight foxing at the side, none of which is visible when the book is open. There is slight foxing and discolouration inside both the front and back free end pages. The dustjacket is in very good condition.
