This work sets forth the history of the watch, not only from the technical standpoint but also from the artistic perspective. It examines how watch decoration has kept pace with fluctuations in decorative style. The influence of new techniques, such as over-enamel painting, is also taken into account. It draws on classical works and personal research of unpublished documents. 106 illustrations in full color, 74 in black and white.
