The (original) Time Museum Historical Catalogue of AMERICAN POCKET WATCHES BY DONALD HOKE; AS PUBLISHED BY THE TIME MUSEUM, 1991.

ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR THE MANY glossy COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS (However, I take great issue with some of the verbiage, watch sizes and case content--the author was flat out WRONG on many accounts; however, the watches speak for themselves. This TM collection was the 3rd finest American coll. ever assembled.).

A great companion to the Bonham June 2014 sale of a famous American watch collection, with additions These 2 books/catalogues are a must for any serious early American Watch collector.

Contents are near new; my last duplicate copy available. $65.00 shipped via media mail paid by me.

Jon

Agree with Jon. The photos are great, but the descriptions will make your head spin.

The author should have returned the money he was paid to do the work he did.
The Atwoods were fleeced!
