7th Edition Joseph Bulova School of Watchmaking Training Manual

To all of you who asked for a copy of the manual, it is now available under the information tab and sub tab of Catalogs Etc. for you to download. I am sorry to have to do it this way but so many of you had asked for it that with all of the time I spent on scanning it and all of the work from all of you who have sent me watches for repair or ordered lumed hands, it was necessary.

Thanks to every one for their support on this project and I hope you all enjoy the lessons you will be studying to become better at repairing Bulovas even if you have never cracked a case open before.

Fantastic!  Thanks JP!

Just as a heads up for Steve... "Terminology" and "General Repairs" don't have a file attached.

I am clicking on the links on the catalogue page and nothing comes up with any of the links.

Anyone else have this problem? If not, it must be my pdf reader but it is the latest Adobe one.

Did you get it to work yet? I use Adobe 11 and Send Now for all of my PDF files.

Don't worry about it buddy, I have several watch repair handbooks so I will be O.K.

One even has plans on how to make your own de-magnetiser!

Thanks Rob. There are a few chapters that didn't get sent and I will correct that today so the manual will be complete.

This is an excellent book, we had several copies at the school, in mint condition. Thanks for posting this, you're a gentleman and a scholar!

Thanks Rev. There are some lessons missing and I will scan them and send to admin for insertion in the total package. 

I have learned quite a bit from this book already and am learning more daily.

This manual is fantastic, but is missing part of sections 3A and all of section 3B. It appears that pages 65-96 were not included. Can you please post when you are able to do so?
