When Watches was first published in 1965, it quickly gained for itself a reputation as the foremost general history of the subject, and although it has been out of print for several years, its position has not been challenged. The number of monochrome illustrations in this new edition has been greatly increased, especially of watches made since 1830. There are also many more illustrations in colour, covering the whole range of the subjects and particularly its decorative aspects. The joint authors are now even better known as horological historians and writers than they were in 1965.
