General InformationThis book is a professionally printed & bound book, not a photocopy, home printed, or Kinko's special. You're purchasing a book that is of bookstore quality.
This was a fantastic addition to my horological library. You can never have enough educational material.

What's insideA set of lessons on watchmaking produced by Elgin.NEW PRINTING - SECOND EDITION I'm into the educational side of watch repair, so I was happy to have found another book to add to my library of these course materials. This is a rare one for sure.
The book is40 pagestotal. There are some section break kind of pages that you expect to find in a lesson based book like this, but not to the point of being excessive. The introduction page does a great job of explaining the text, so take a moment and read that page.The hand-drawn illustrations in the book are beautiful. I have included a couple of pages that show some of these illustrations.The lessons are all step-by-step instructions on how to complete the concept being taught. There is not a lot of text explaining the concepts in the lessons portion of the book. The lessons portion are the first 20 pages
Some highlights:
  • The "course outline" page has what the 8 lessons consist of
  • Lessons are a step-by-step list of things you need to do to complete the benchwork
  • The first 20 pages are the lessons.
  • Each lesson has the steps and illustrations that accompany the lesson
  • Much more text based instruction is located in the second half of the book
  • In this part there are great illustrations and information on topics such as cannon pinion tightening, friction jewels, roller jewels, etc
  • There is a great discussion on correctly centering and leveling a hairspring
  • A detailed instruction on setting up the escapement
