These four pocket guides are portable treasure troves of information for collectors, bargain hunters, junk shop browsers and even dealers. Small and concise for easy reference, they also contain full colour pictures and detailed drawings which will take the guesswork out of buying, bidding and bargaining at auctions, and also add to the enjoyment of this task. "The Antiques Roadshow Pocket Guide: Clocks & Watches" is organized into short chapters to allow instant access to every stage of antique collecting. It serves as an introduction, highlighting the history of clocks and watches. It also guides the reader towards a technical understanding of how clocks work, examining chiming mechanisms, types of clock face and hands, and gongs. There are separate sections detailing different varieties of clocks, from simple wall clocks, longcase clocks, mantel clocks and travelling clocks to the curiously named mystery and novelty clocks section. There is also a section on watches, including pocket and wrist varieties. Each of the four pocket guides contains a checklist of points to watch out for when distinguishing between original condition and bodged renovation. There is also an informative section on the care, maintenance and insurance of your clocks and watches. The useful glossary of terms uncovers the meaning behind the language that antique dealers use.
