    I have just finished the second edition of my book "The Repeater" (available from www.watkinsr.id.au). Compared to the first edition, there are changes throughout and a new chapter on grande sonnerie clock-watches.

    Excellent work! I read it all the way through. I always wondered how the modern CAD/CAM wristwatch repeaters worked. Also enjoyed the grande sonnerie section, although I have seen almost as many designs there as there are for repeaters. I also learned new names for some of the parts for which I use different names (like "flirt" or "trip dog"). To do all of this detailed explanation so well, your writing must be a work of love for these magnificent old machines.

    I have always admired your work Richard; your translations from French works, in particular, are a tremendous contribution to English-speaking horology aficionados. Best regards,
    --Robert
