"Theory of Horology" is a comprehensive introduction to the measurement of time and the mechanisms that man has developed to make it possible. The various components of watches and clocks are explained in detail, along with their dimensions. For educational purposes, the detailed treatment of escapements and complicated watches is covered in greater depth in other specific FET works.
This book is written specifically for people undergoing basic training in watchmaking. However, it may also be of interest to enthusiasts who wish to discover and understand the mechanisms of watches of all types. The theoretical foundations are accessible without any in-depth mathematical background.
