    WOW ! ! !

    I am absolutely overwhelmed!

    You just never know how your book is going to be received until it's actually out there, that's the scary part.

    As you can imagine, I have a smile ear to ear right now, walking on cloud nine!

    Thank you for posting Bruce's review Adam!

    Great thread running here:
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/wal...p-2710674.html

    Shows not just the importance of owning good books on your subject, in the case early WWI watches but additionally, the gratitude we own to people that take the huge time and effort to research this information and condense it into a useful book

    Truly thanks to the likes of Stan Czubernat aka Literustyfan

    Re: WALTHAM Trench Watches of the Great War

    Interesting info on WALTHAM history:

    Especially this 1915 part!
    We Made History | Waltham

    I thought that was the Depollier/Waltham watch!

    Complete history here:
    We Made History | Waltham

    Worth a study
