First published in 1928. Reprinted with supplement 1937. This reprinted book contains over 100 drawings and diagrams plus 16 plates. This book, subtitled The Science of Time Measurement and the Construction of Clocks, Watches and Chronometers, is intended both to assist the student and to provide a work of reference for the more experienced horologer. The primary object of the work is to furnish technical data and information amply supplemented by clear and accurate diagrams. Historical facts have been included wherever desirable, but do not interfere with the main function of the work, to explain the technology of clocks and timepieces. The fundamentals of time measurement and the principles of operation and constructional details of clocks, watches and chronometers are described in full. Care has also been devoted to such essential details as the various forms of escapement, striking and chiming mechanisms, repeating and chronograph work, balance and springs, and keyless devices as well as electrical clock systems and marine chronometers. In addition over one hundred scale drawings and diagrams are included in the text together with a number of photographic illustrations. Also covered are the mathematics and calculations needed for finding the lengths of pendulums, numbers for wheels and pinions, etc. This reprint provides access to a book which no student of horology can afford to be without.
