I found this book to be valuable for evaluating old clocks before purchasing. Some can be put in working order rather easily, others require professional care. It pays to be able to know the difference, and it is very useful to learn the names of the basic types of movements and their components.

I rather enjoyed the book and the writing style of the author. I'm an amateur clockmaker but intend to pursue the subject through multiple means of training - many books, DVD courses and of course a lot of practical experience.

Would strongly recommend that anyone considering this field also join a professional organization right off the bat. The American Watchmakers Clockmakers Institute (AWI) is great. NAWCC is also one that comes highly recommended.

Donald DeCarle is the most famous of my writers on Watch and Clock repair. His books are easy to understand and with all the illustrations you will have a better chance of repair.
