Hello everyone!
I'm glad to be part of this very interesting part of pocket watch lovers.
I'm 35 years old and I started to love PW especially fusee's and verge fusee's.
I graduated a school of medicine and a studied a lot of books.
I tried to do the same with my second love (the first is my wife Smile ) to find a book or a few to start learning but I didn't find anything.
Until now I have 4 PW I suppose to be verge fusee: for 1 of them I am sure; but for 3 other I don't have any clue.
Could you, ANYONE, to help me finding a book with the description of verge fusee mechanism (I already read the posts concerning the fusee and the verge escapement), PLEASE? Roll Eyes
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Here are the first of my PW's I have no clue about: it is written on movement:J's Burr, Bristol, 95

Kind regards,
Daniel
