    I have the book also. It is a great source of information. I am glad to see that it is available again.

    I have a much greater appreciation for watches after reading several books and taking the Time Zone Level 1 course.

    I would also check on Amazon for books under the term beginner watchmaking. There are some good ones available.

    I have this book. It is a fun read. Very informative.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
