Cuttings-patent style ambrotype of a watchmaker at work, with several watches, a clock, tools, and disassembled watch parts, including a small gear that he holds carefully in one hand. Housed in a full case with split spine
The photographer's aim was obviously to give us clear view of the mechanical intricacies of watch making, and he does an excellent job.
