Watchmaking - step-by-step making of a watch

Watchmaking - the step-by-step making of a watch
This looks to be a VERY nice book on the topic of watch making.

About the book Watchmaking by George Daniels

The first and most comprehensive step-by-step guide on the subject, Watchmaking has become a classic in its own right. This new edition is updated to include a new section which discusses and illustrates a variety of the author’s own watches. The author's principal aim in writing this book has been to inspire and encourage the art of watchmaking, especially among a new generation of enthusiasts. The making of the precision timekeeper is described, step by step, and is illustrated at each stage with line drawings and brief explanatory captions. Great care has been taken to ensure the text is easy to follow and to avoid complicated technical descriptions.

Right, well, they had me at the title "Watchmaking"...and that awesome technical illustration of the watch mechanism.

Here's where you can view some sample pages and/or pre-order Watchmaking, due out in May of 2011.

Looks very interesting, I'd be particularly interested in the making of small gear wheels and making small components
