Antique Watch Repairing & Adjusting with 160+ Images.Good and bad watchmakers are separated by their ability. But exactly what is to be understood as ability in a watchmaker? We should say that this is a combination of knowledge and skill; and the watchmaker who possesses in well balanced proportion the most of both of these, will have the highest ability,Knowledge is mental—something stored in the mind; skill is largely physical—effectiveness in using the hands. These things are different; yet they must interlock and work together to result in good ability. The books written to be studied by watchmakers may be classified as: (1) books that deal mostly with knowledge of timepiece mechanisms, and (2) books meant principally to instruct how to use watchmakers’ tools with skill. A survey of the books now on the market reveals that most of these are of the class that deals with knowledge of the mechanism of watches; with such things as designing movements, and detecting and correcting faults in trains and escapements; hairspring manipulations; replacement of ready-made parts; cleaning and oiling; position and temperature adjustments, and so on.
