3.0 out of 5 stars Good for Beginners April 21 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I expected more in-depth details with more complexity but its a good start and well illustrated. I was looking for actual ways to build cases and dials versus buying existing pieces and assembling them

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic guide to "modding" watches. March 25 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very basic information of hand/dial/bezel swaps that is freely available on any of the forums referenced in the supplements to this book. Not worth the money in my opinion. Kudos to the author for wanting to make money from his hobby but this book requires proofreading and an editor before charging $9.99 for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book Sept. 29 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read it cover to cover, and can't wait to make my first watch. I was a little skeptical when I bought it, but have no regrets. It delivers on the claims, you will be able to make your own watch.
