Is anyone familiar with a series of books by a Swiss watchmaker named Humbert? An acquaintance of mine told me about them today. I'd like to find out more about them and their titles so that I could attempt to find copies to either read or buy.

Thanks,

BarryB

Here is the list of the 10 books I have by Humbert.

These textbooks are classics and have been used for decades as textbooks at most Swiss watchmaker schools
