If youare unfamiliar with these watches, you will be in for a real treat as the "Ottoman" market was very important to highend watchmakers in England and the continent for centuries.These watches (and clocks) hold a unique place in thehorological world. You'll be sure to be entranced and informed by his presentation. Once again, we will hold a "First Aid Clinic" after the workshop for you to interact with other members regarding a restoration problem you may be having or some other aspect of research you may be doing that you require assistance with.
