"The Origins of Self-Winding Watches 1773-1779" was first published December 2013 as a hardcover limited edition of 100 copies.

This 264-page book is a serious examination of the technology and history of self-winding watches. It covers a period of seven years, during which the five basic designs were created, and examines the roles of Abram Louys Perrelet, Hubert Sarton, Abram Louis Breguet and others, who contributed to the development of these watches.



The appendices include details of case makers used by Philipe DuBois & Fils, and some remarks about later developments.

The PDF version of The Origins of Self-Winding Watches (which includes the covers) is provided free and can be downloaded from http://www.watkinsr.id.au/Origins.html
