thought this was a great book. simple, easy-to-read & a great book for budding collectors/n00bs. has the basic terms. not overly technical or browbeatingly historical. very very useful.

i learned a lot. a great fundament. found this randomly at the Library but i hope to pick this up as reference book. would recommend to anyone who knows nothing about watches but wants to learn basic things before beginning on their watch collecting quest.
