§ “Mr Alan Lloyd is well known in horological circles for his previous books, and for his many contributions to British, Swiss, and American horological publications. His present book is quite a new departure in horological literature. In it he almost entirely avoids all the well known achievements of the greater Masters and concentrates on those, in England and on the Continent, who hitherto have not been so widely known, and yet who, as the reader will see, are worthy of the highest recognition.” (Blurb).
