    Default Twenty-First Century Watchmaking - Book One

    Has anyone used the box
    Twenty-First Century Watchmaking - Book One
    William O. Smith Jr.

    Seems like an interesting book, but is it geared to expert machinists or new comers to the field of watch parts making.

    The book describes one method of making flat parts using a watchmaker's lathe and modern grinding disks. It then explains the method several times by illustrating how to make different parts. The illustrations are excellent photographs.
    It is for competent watch repairers. It is an excellent book and well worth reading.
