I have been involved in a book on Viennese clocks for many years, together with Stephan Andréewitch and Alexander Graef both of whom did the majority of the hard work. It is an exceptional publication running to 766 pages for Volume I and 560 for Volume II. Volume I has a huge number of superb quality pictures of hundreds of exceptional Viennese clocks, together with a lot of background to their manufacture styles, etc. Volume II has details regarding many thousands of makers from the Austro Hungarian Empire. It gives details, where known, of dates of birth, family members, where they worked from, when they were entered into the various guilds, when they died, etc.

The book is in German but that does not detract from large portions of the book where the pictures and simple descriptions of the clocks tell their own story.
The small number of pictures set out below give you some idea of the quality of the book and the sort of clocks and movements that you will be able to study.

Please note the pictures on the website are photographs of the book rather than the original pictures and, therefore, the quality of the book itself is significantly better.
