5031 - The Artistry of the English Watch


This lavishly illustrated book traces the design and decorative development of the English watch, from the bejewelled novelties of Royalty through to the purely functional timepiece. Styles, techniques and materials are analysed then related to dating and the use of machinery. Good subject with detailed illustrations in colour and black & white. Well documented.
