"The first section gives a detailed account of chronometer testing for wristwatches in Europe, primarily Swi tzerland. Information about testing methods, procedures, and guidelines, as well as participating makers, are based on research from the yearly reports of Swiss testing agencies between 1925 and present, and from the Swiss Observatories' reports ke pt between 1941 and 1967. The second part presents chronometer wristwatches by known makers each of which has been tested according to the guidelines of Swiss testing agencies. The types of errors found in the testing process and their possible reasons are pointed out. Follwing the theoretic-scientific presentation of the different testing methods, the reader learns the practical side of chronometer testing. At the end, the reader will want to test his own chronometer wristwatch. (A)lso will teach the collector to distinguish chronometer wristwatches and non-chronometer wristwatches from various countries. In addition to the many photographs in the illustration section, a list of over 300 Swiss watch manufacturers who made chronome ter wristwatches will be very useful. The reader also receives hints about fakes and forgeries." A heavy book which may require extra postage depending on destination. Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.
