About Christopher S. Barrow

Chris Barrow has been an electronic design engineer for thirty years. For the past twenty-five years or so, he has been restoring and repairing pocket watches, and for the past six years has run a successful web-based business selling restored pocket watches. He is fascinated by the intricate and often beautiful mechanisms of the evolving pocket watch, from the 18th century verge to the precision lever movement of the early 20th century. He sees it as his mission to rescue these lovely things from the scrapheap and to restore them to working order for the enjoyment of others. Chris lives in Leicester with his partner Anne and their two moggies. He is also a lover of wood, being an enthusiastic carpenter and furniture maker in his spare time.
