If you can’t hold out for George Daniels’ masterfully written book Watchmaking to hit North American shores on the June 21st release date that is currently advertised on Amazon, several copies of the 2011, 4th edition are available in the UK as of today, June 1st, through Jeff Formby’s Horological Book Store.
This book is highly recommended reading for anyone wishing to delve into the finer details of watchmaking. If you don’t own a copy already, and have any aspirations of crafting a watch of your own, don’t make the mistake of putting it off like I did several years ago. If history does indeed repeat itself, copies of this reprint likely won’t be around for long.
Update: Jeff Formby Antiques has sold out of their entire first round of prints. Their website has been updated and now states that additional copies will be available early next week, the second week of June.
Also, as pointed out by Tony in the comments below, Watchmaking is currently in stock at Amazon.co.uk. Amazon UK is also offering the book for fewer quid than the copies sold through Jeff Formby Antiques.
