Review:

From the reviews:

“An interesting and well-illustrated introduction into the history and current understanding of the mechanics of watches and clocks ... . Many of the results reported here were obtained by academicians in China, first published as PhD or Master theses, or various local research papers. The publication of this monograph in the Springer series ‘History of Mechanism and Machine Science’ makes the interesting topic of design and manufacturing of mechanical watches and clocks easier accessible to the western research community.” (Franz Selig, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1262, 2013)
