The pages covering the horology display at the 1862 Great Exhibition in London in more detail than in the official catalogue and with different illustrations. The author, (who served on the first Council of the BHI and who was well aware of the criticism towards the English trade by men like Sir John Bennett), is at pains to point out that the best quality Swiss and French watches in the Exhibition are equal in price or more expensive than English ones.
