The measurement of time is a topic as old as the existence of humanity. Such a fascinating subject deserves to be approached with a collection of free watchmaking books, tailored for enthusiasts of the field.

The evolution of watches is a long one, from the hourglass to the digital timepieces we know today. The craft of watchmaking dates back to the 13th century when renowned artisans created grand mechanical clocks that adorned bell towers and other public buildings.

Modern watchmakers do not have the same workload as their predecessors did in centuries past. With the advent of digital watches, this craft has been reduced to repairing specific parts and changing batteries in wristwatches and mechanical timepieces in general.

Watchmaking can be defined as the art of creating, inspecting, repairing, and restoring watches of various types. Nevertheless, every day, watchmakers are becoming more prepared for the repair of complex components.
