Penney (D.): English Wristwatches: The Untold Story
NEW. 23 pages, illustrated, 2021. Profile No 2 in a series of booklets by David Penney.

The wristwatch concept was invented in England in the 1870's and this book includes watches by Rotherhams, Nicole Nielson, J. W. Benson, W. H. Williamson and the Lancashire Watch Company (LWCo watches were cased up for the wrist after the firm went bankrupt in 1910). Card covers. (Ref: N5164)
