Picture of the productBook 6 Seth Thomas
Book 6 Seth Thomas covers the most popular movements produced by this well-known American clockmaking dynasty. Seth Thomas clocks rank high among repairers for quality and durability.

Collectors are often attracted to Seth Thomas clocks for the same reasons, and this manufacturing name is more recognizable to the general public than any other. Seth Thomas (1785-1859) started work in the clock manufacturing business in the early 1800s. The company is best known for the clocks made during the American mass production era, extending from the late 1800s until the early 1950s.

Chapter 1 is devoted to the No. 89 strike movement, which is one of the most plentiful produced by the company. Chapter 2 covers the main chime movements made by the company. These are the No. 113, the No. 124, and the Sonora Chime. Chapter 3 contains material on the early, difficult-to-repair ships bell movement. Chapter 4 features a variety of movements which strike the hours only, or the hours and half hours. These made up the largest share of Seth Thomas production. Chapter 5 includes material on simple, early alarms attached to movements.

There are also articles on the Long Alarm and the Automatic Eight-Day Alarm. Chapter 6 covers several timepieces, that is, mechanisms which do not strike or chime.

Picture of the productThe Rolex Story
The brand with the crown is recognized worldwide as an invaluable sports implement and luxury product. In little more than one hundred years, it has become one of the most successful and innovative watch brands on the planet.

Rolex manufactures more than a half a million wristwatches per year while maintaining an outstanding reputation and near-perfect quality. From the beginning, the sponsorship of statesmen, movie stars, and athletes has driven its success, but the company has expanded to include more than just the rich and famous. The Rolex Oyster became the first watch to defy the elements when, in 1927, Mercedes Gleitze wore one while she swam the English Channel. In 1933, the company patented the first automatic winding mechanism.

Learn more about this history and read updated reports written about new Rolex ideas and performance tests featured in the German watch magazine Armbanduhren (Wristwatch) from the past 15 years.

Picture of the productSports Watches
In this guide to modern sports watches, discover honest assessments of luxury sports models, many varieties of chronographs, GMTs, and extreme diving watches, represented by the best sports brands in the world, including Patek Philippe, Breitling, Omega, Chronoswiss, and more.

But first, what exactly is a sports watch? Jewelers, connoisseurs, and the editors have agreed on the following definition: a sporty-looking timepiece, usually made of steel, that stays on your arm whether you're racing, diving, or flying. In the 1970s, Girald Genta designed three classic sports watches that challenged conservative styles and remained virtually unmodified for more than thirty years.

Using Gentais legacy as a starting point, this new book traces the evolution of the sports watch to today, focusing on the 21st century, from simple, robust steel watches with three hands to more complicated timepieces, with detailed technical comparisons between models, some of which are already considered classics.
