Hello everyone! I've been working on learning watch repair, and have mainly focused my efforts to that task... Lately I've been drawn toward earlier american watches, and many different companies. I've heard many books being referenced, and I definitely need to start a small library to do research. First off I ordered the complete price guide to watches, which I should have done ages ago. I can not find a copy of the history of the American watch case that isn't priced completely reduliculous.... Does anyone know a source for this? I've heard of "mirolisk" or something like that it seems to have a ton of information as well, if anyone knows about that book. Or if I'm totally off base, please any recommendations to get me into some information About new York watch co, Hampden, Lancaster, Rockford, any of the older manufacturers. What watches to collect, what to look for, grades and any information really. I just need a little help getting oriented and pointed in the right direction. There's so many books I see referenced, and I don't know where to start! Thanks! Rick Hufnagel .
