As an avid collector of chronometers, I recommend this work. It is a nicely done reference work with a listing of chronometer grade movements and how they were tested.

Although the book contains very interesting information on chronometer testing, there are literally hundreds of spelling errors. One wonders about the accuracy of the information when the book was assembled in such a careless fashion.

This is an excellent book and deals with the subject more than adequately. The first half of the book (pages 1-82) deals with the history and methods for testing wristwatch chronometers for Switzerland, Germany, France and England. Along with the text the pages are filled with vintage chronometer watch ads and tables with production data, results of observatory competitions and photos of actual testing certificates. The second half of the book (pages 83-202) is a gallery of high quality color pictures of vintage (1930-1975) chronometer wristwatches and their movements with informative descriptions. Includes a decent index for reference. Total pages are 211. Hardcover with dust jacket. The book measures 9 1/2" x 12 1/2", ISBN 0-7643-0375-9. The author Fritz von Osterhausen is a noted watch expert and author of many books and articles on horology, including Movado-History(Schiffer 1996).
