This invaluable, practical book is written by a watch repairer with over twenty years' experience. It is aimed principally at the novice mechanical watch repairer, although those with more experience will also find it most useful. Brimming with advice and useful tips, it provides step-by-step photographs with accompanying text and demonstrates how to maintain a mechanical watch, and how to identify problems and correct them. The author discusses the theory behind how a watch works and reveals how to take a watch apart and how to reassemble it without causing any damage. Each section of the book is related to a particular element within the watch, and the author clearly explains the function and design of each part.

About the Author:

Mark Wiles, who has had a passion for repairing watches and clocks since the age of twelve, runs the workshop at Antique & Modern in East Barnet (an Omega credited service centre). After passing his Final British Horological Institute (BHI) examination in technical horology, he was granted a three-year apprenticeship by the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers (WCC). He thus maintained a proud family tradition dating back to the eighteenth century for two of his ancestors, Steven and Edwin Wiles, were both distinguished clockmakers based in central London. In 2010 Mark became both a Freeman of the WCC and the BHI's youngest accredited Fellow.
