Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Peter Wotton is a graduate, chartered engineer and member of the City and Guilds of London Institute. With over forty years professional experience in the fields of automation and process control, it is hardly surprising that he has a broad interest in electronic and mechanical instruments in general and the measurement of time in particular. The interest in mechanical clocks and watches goes back to childhood but only in recent years has he been able to expand this fully. He has a special interest in both pin-pallet watches and mechanical anniversary clocks, having written a number of articles on the latter. This book lays out the history and development of the anniversary clock and offers valuable information on the construction and repair of these clocks.

Peter Wotton has written a highly accurate book with good research and the pictures are of the clearest quality that any clock book has been produced.His reserch on the makers of the clocks in this book are accurate including all the dates.I cant say enough for the photography.

Bought as a gift for an amateur clock repairer/lover. Enjoyed the information, but is not as instructional in terms of clock repair as he would have liked. It has usable information in identifying clocks and has beautiful pictures, but is not a "how to" book by any means.
