By Michael Stern

Die ersten Uhrmacher waren Schlosser und Schmiede, additionally Metallhandwerker.

Dieses Lehrbuch für die Uhrmacherausbildung aus dem Jahre 1951 gibt Zeugnis von den Ansprüchen an den Handwerksnachwuchs und beschreibt detailliert die zu beherrschenden Fertigkeiten und Arbeitstechniken sowie die mechanische Ausbildung, die Uhrmacher absolvieren.
Inhaltlich umfasst das Lehrbuch die Grundlagen der Uhrmacherlehre, beginnend mit der Werkstoffkunde/-behandlung über wichtige Arbeitstechniken (Drehen, Bohren, Gewindeschneiden, Schleifen, Polieren, Feinstellen der Uhren usw.) bis hin zum konstruierten Fachzeichnen. Aber auch die Grundlagen zum Regulieren von Groß- und Kleinuhren finden sich in diesem didaktisch aufgebauten Lehrbuch

Ältere Fachbücher sind oft in ihren Bezeichnungen und Normen nicht mehr aktuell und deshalb in der heutigen Zeit nur schwer verständlich. Darum wurden in diesem kommentierten Reprint alle physikalischen Einheiten auf den neusten Stand gebracht und viele Anmerkungen verweisen auf heute gültige Normen und Bezeichnungen. Mit seiner Überarbeitung sorgt Uhrenfachbuchautor Michael Stern dafür, dass das "Lehrbuch für das Uhrmacherhandwerk" auch in der heutigen Zeit noch voll und ganz den Anspruch als Lehrbuch erfüllt und sich als aktuelles Fachbuch für Auszubildende präsentiert.
