A 1921 Reprint April 28 2011
By E. Morales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Somewhat disappointed to discover that this is simply a photo-reproduction of the original home study course that was copyrighted in 1921. Although I'm sure much of the info is still relevant. The book is split up into 3 parts. Part 1 (page 37 to 96) covers basic skills like filing and elementary lathe work, Pivoting and jeweling. Part 2 (page 113 to 168)covers clock repair. Part 3 (page 193 to 430) covers watch repair.

The book uses no photos. The illustrations appear to be old-style wood engravings. Moreover there aren't many illustrations (~16 in a 444 page book). There is an interesting section called "LEGITIMATE SCALE OF CHARGES FOR WATCH REPAIRS" on page 434 that lists cleaning and repairing 21 Jewel watches for 3 to 5 dollars (I guess that was the going rate in 1921). So you get the picture - this book is merely a reproduction of the original 1921 text. This book is relevant as a historic example with some useful yet dated info and certainly only worth the asking price if that's what you're looking for.
