The English Watch 1585-1970 A Unique Alliance of Art, Design and Inventive Genius
Auteur:Camerer Cuss, Terence
Suffolk / 2009
Hardback, 504 pages, 830 color illustrations
This is the first book to cover all aspects of English watches from every period. Watches represent a fascinating combination of applied art and science and an outstanding contribution to their history and development was made in England. By dividing the watches into six periods, each with its own introduction, the author has been able to provide an admirably clear and comprehensive survey, to describe the pioneering inventions as they were made and to illustrate the distinctive character of the English watch as it evolved. An outline of each period is followed by information on the trade in London and the provinces, watchmakers, case makers, case styles and decoration, dials, hands, characteristics of the mechanisms and timekeeping capabilities. Over 290 watches illustrating these points have been carefully selected from both private and public collections and details have been enlarged to clarify important features. Many of these watches have never been illustrated before. There is an extensive glossary which includes further technical information and, as well as a detailed general index, there are separate indexes of makers and case makers.
