" The chapter on the chronology of Tompion’s life is alone an astonishing document with minute detail never before chronicled in print on any clock maker. The insight into the manufacture of Tompion’s clocks and watches and those who worked in Tompion’s and other workshops offers a more revealing account of practices than we have for any other maker.
