Originally written in book format, Practical Watch Collecting was published as a 10-part series in the Watch & Clock Bulletin, ending in February 2012. The full-color, 130-page book, which returns the series to its original form, has been carefully reviewed and updated. Both beginning and advanced watch collectors will enjoy learning about the attributes and idiosyncracies of watches from Richard Watkins unique perspective. After retiring from teaching computer science at the University of Tasmania, Richard Watkins took up the study of watches, building up an extensive library on the subject. He has published 17 translations, three monographs, four articles, and a 1,000-page bibliography on watches and watchmaking. In 2010 Richard was made a Fellow of the NAWCC for his work in research and education.
