Documents Concerning Christin

By Heinz Mundschau, Bernard Roobaert and Richard Watkins

2014, 39 pages, ill

This article contains facsimiles and translations of all documents written by and referring to Christin that we know at the time of writing.

It includes the description and diagrams of a self-winding (automatic) watch which was unknown until now.

In addition, there are descriptions of other inventions: a watch escapement, an eight-day watch, and a bizarre correspondence system (telegraph system).
