    Interesting reads both, but neither really delved into the top watches. The top was "Hamilton" followed by "Waltham" then "Elgin" . Hamilton was bought by a Swiss company in 1969 and is still made today.
    A excellent book to read about watch repair is "The Watch Repairer's Manual" by Fried. Get the fourth edition if you can afford it. That and the military's excellent TM 9-1575 .

    fourth 9780918845115-us.jpg
    60 bucks and down
    ISBN 10: 0918845114 / ISBN 13: 9780918845115

    I have to sell something else first and I have not a clue how the gears and the little bitty screws are made.

    That's the book. He is the best for beginner watch repairers to follow. Some of the "standard" watch repair procedures can be a bit confusing like "stacking" unless you see it in action.
