About this title


First published in 1950, De Carle's encyclopedia is still the definitive practical reference book on clocks and watches. The book has an immense amount of knowledge compressed into an easily understood form, with over 3,000 alphabetical entries providing antiquarian as well as technical and professional information. Over one-third of the entries are illustrated, and nearly all of the line drawings are the work of the late Arthur Ayres FBHI.

About the Author:

Donald de Carle was a Fellow and Medallist of the British Horological Institute, and a Freeman of the City of London by virtue of being a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers. He contributed to the Encyclopaedia Britannica and was the author of many other horological works including Clock and Watch Repairing, Complicated Watches and their Repair, Practical Clock Repairing, Clocks and their Value, Horology ('Teach Yourself Series'), Practical Watch Adjusting and Springing, The Watchmaker's and Modern Engineer's Lathe, Watches and their Value, etc. Donald de Carle died in 1989.
