Book Description American Watchmakers Institute Press, Cincinnati, 1991. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. New copy with dust jacket. 499 pages, many figures and b&w photographs, 1991. Now in print again. The author trained as a chronometer maker and worked at the United States Naval Observatory in Washington. This is an excellent book about the history of the chronometer; the role of observatories; chronometer trials; repair, cleaning and handling; pocket chronometers and deck watches; and much more. The book is an excellent source for information about American chronometers by Hamilton and other makers, especially William Bond, John Bliss and the Negus family. The chapter on the quartz chronometer is also useful as is the section on rare and unusual chronometers (mainly English). This is a heavy item (2.1 kg) so additional shipping will be required.
