    I am in the process of reading (more like studying) this very informative, well researched and fascinating book. By William Muir and Bernard Kraus. I would be very interested in similer books about other early american watch companys.

    A good book about the Waltham Watch Co. was written by Moore - "Timing a Century" - Difficult and expensive to find. NAWCC has
    lending copy.

    An interesting book "Waltham Industries" by Sanderson which discusses all businesses in Waltham, MA.

    Michael Herrold wrote a Bulletin Supplement on "American Watchmakers".

    Bolino wrote a book "Massachusetts Watchmakers".

    There are some contemporary books written
    in the late 19 th century about Watch Industry - one is by Abbot.

    If you are an NAWCC member, you can check their online library catalog.

    Don't forget Crossman and Abbott, they are certainly worthwhile.

  7. I would also recommend "Time for America"
    the story of the Hamilton watch co 1892-1992
    by Don Sauers.
    It was one of the first books i read and enjoyed in immensely.
