This book readily tells you which staff is closest to the one you need or YOU can now measure and sort your loose staffs to the proper company and size. This saves you hours of looking and trying by eye to find the right staff or a close one to remachine to fit the hard to find watches. This will pay for itself the first few staffs you sort out of you pile of loose staffs, and continue to pay over and over each time you use it. If you are a beginning collector you will find your watchmaker has trouble finding staffs but has many loose mixed assortments of staffs or bottles without labels, and you at shows can buy these yourselves. Material is becoming a major expense and problem since the closing of S.Larose and Manfred Trauring's company. Be prepared in advance for opportunity to buy loose material.
