Joseph Bulova School of Watchmaking - Preliminary Training Unit Fifth Edition

£50.00

Product description

This softcover book is in good condition overall. The book has a spiral binding which is intact. The cover of the book is noticeably worn throughout. Inside, the pages of the book are in good condition and are most importantly clean and clear throughout meaning they are without major issue. There are signs of foxing on the edges of the pages.

The book is dated 1954, published by the Bulova School of Watchmaking. The book contains 11 training units.

'The success of almost any pursuit in life depends, to a certain extent, upon a system of coordination between the eye, mind and hands. The ability to coordinate the activities of these three facilities is developed from infancy throughout life.

The successful pursuit of the arts, such as sculpture, music and painting, requires an extremely high degree of coordination between a person's eyes, mind and hands.

It is the high degree to which this coordinative ability must be developed in the watchmaker's trade that makes it so necessary for the student to apply himself to the following Training Unit conscientiously.

This unit is designed to develop finger dexterity and reasonable proficiency in the use of the basic tools of the trade. It is during the performance of this unit that the student forms the correct habits relative to his working position at the bench and its associated equipment.'
