Today, I received my autographed Bond Family book, "From Celestial to Terrestrial Timekeeping" from my friend and author Donald Saff.

This book is nothing short of spectacular, all 424 large pages.

What a terrific book!

It is probably the most referenced clock book ever--the amount of work, documentation and photos is overwhelming!

It will be a fabulous addition to any horological library and I highly recommend it to everyone.

Thanks, Don, for the book, your friendship and your high rank in the annuals of Horology!

Glad to see he's still around.

I remember when he came to my shop more than 15 years ago to look at my Fasoldts.

Do you know if he still kept his examples?

He had a wild one that looked like it was off-center on the dial!

I have that type on my website but I guess you have not paid attention to it. (I have three of these off centers)

I look forward to that book. I contacted NAWCC to buy it however they indicated they did not have it yet. I'll keep trying.

This book is not to be confused with the recent "extra-terrestrial" book published on CW watches!

Evidently, the assoc dropped thr ball and was slow to pay some "tariffs" on the books. Luckily, for me, the author had his private stash!
