Here's what other authors have to say:

"The Watch of the Future" is excellent; intelligently conceived, well organized and, above all, well written."  Don Sauers, "Time for America" 

"The Watch of the Future" tells a big story of the Hamilton Watch Company. Anyone who is even mildly interested in Hamilton's products and history would surely benefit from its well-researched contents." Henry Fried, "Horological Times magazine" "It is one of the rare books which will be of interest not only to those with either wristwatch or electrical horology enthusiasms but also those with just a passing interest." Dennis Harris, Antiquarian Horology (England)

"Vastly more literate and interesting than most authors. Good work, four stars!" Tony Hyman, I'll Buy That!
