     I received the book this weekend in perfect shape and it is a
     beautiful book.  It amazes me that we can get something from
     Germany quicker than we can ship something across the US
     with less damage and rough treatment.
     I have been collecting chronometers and ships clocks mainly since about l981
     Once again, congratulations on the writing of such an informative book.
     I am sure it will help fill in my research library and will provide me with
     many hours of enjoyment while reading it.
     Thanks,  Bill William H. Tuttle, Roanoke, VA USA

     The book just arrived, 30 minutes ago. beautiful, stunning, brilliant,
     fantastic!! yes -- I love the book.
     People tell me that I should turn 'OnTheDash' into a book . . . Your book
     would be the model!! I have never seen anything like it, and it is
     incredible [I search for words that I have not yet used.] . . .
     Turning that question around, why don't you turn your
     book into a website?.. Is there a good way for the two of us to work
     together?? ...

     Dienstag, 11. November 2003      Dear Dr. Knirim,
     I have meant to write to you for over a year now to tell you how
     marvellous your book Militaruhren is and what a wonderful resource
     it has been for you. At the request of Christopher, you sent
     me a copy of this beautiful book last year and I have spent a great
     deal of time reading it since having received it.
     This is an astonishingly well-prepared book with beautiful photography
     and a massive amount of information about these fine timepieces.
     As a watchmaker I am always looking for additional information
     about interesting precision time pieces. As many of these movements
     migrate around the world, it has been my pleasure to have seen many
     examples at my own bench and it is wonderful to be able to refer to
     such an exhaustive and authoritative book in order to learn more
     about a particular movement and in turn, pass this information on
     to the owner. After a year I am still totally impressed each time I open
     your book. You have not only created a wonderful resource but you
     have preserved countless pieces of history in printed form which I
     believe will be an incentive for people to preserve the actual
     movements for future generations to enjoy.
     Thank you for your incredible work on this very fine book!

     Sa, 22. Nov 2003       Konrad,
     Your book arrived safely and I congratulate you on a beautiful

     Fri, 02 Jan 2004        Hi Konrad -

     You absolutely "made" his Christmas. Hope you have have had happy  holidays.

     Fri, 13 Feb 2004      Sehr geehrter Herr Dr. Knirim
     Vielen herzlichen Dank für die Übersendung Ihres wundervollen Buches.
     Es ist eines der wenigen Bücher deren Lektüre man zutraut, daß auch jemand,
     der nicht von der speziellen Leidenschaft gepackt ist verstehen kann, was
     dieses Feld so wunderbar macht. Das also die allgemeine Sprachlosigkeit, die
     Sammler von Nicht-Sammlern trennt einmal durchbrechen kann. Das ist ganz selten.
     ...Nochmals, herzlichsten Dank für das Buch.

     Wed, 28 Apr 2004,      Dear Konrad,
     First, thank you for very good service with fast shipping and a well packed
     book with your kind dedication and signature.
     Second and most important, thank you for an extremely fine and interesting
     book. It's one of the best books I have ever seen on the market if not the best!
     I have collected both watch books and watches for 10 years now.
     This book really grabs you with it's rich illustrations in high quality of both the
     watches interior and exterior. This in combination with the authentic phootage
     of the men who used their issued timekeepers in different situations and time
     periods as professional instruments, men that in many cases were completely
     depending on their timekeepers to perform the hard dutys assigned to them,
     makes your unique book something much more than just a reference book.
     You give life to the watches and I really can feel the history reaching me.
     When reading about a certain watch, examening the picture of it and considering
     it's different technical aspects, I often find myself leening back in my reading chair,
     imagining beeing in the historical situation where this certain watch was used.
     I am my self in the military and I serve as technical crew member and loadmaster
     onboard a C-130 Hercules. This job has placed me in many situations and places
     around the world where I meet fellow crewmembers from different countries. Quite
     often from Germany actually. Strangly enough, the vast majority of us share a
     common high interest in our timekeepers. This interest is much higher than it is
     with my friends outside the armed forces or with people in general.
     Despite that, I would happily recommend this book not only to all collectors of
     timepieces, but also to any person with a connection to the military or any one
     with just the smallest general interest in our history.
     Thanks again, and keep up the good Job!
     Kind Regards Jesper Schleimann-Jensen, SWEDEN
     **************
     Fri, 2 Jul 2004,      Dear Konrad,
     The Book arrived today, and although it is Wimbledon semi-finals, it has
     had more of my attention than the tennis! Wonderful production, particularly
     the pictures which I wouldn't think could be surpassed. The English is more than
     welcome, and a few Englaish grammatical errors just show us that the Author hasn't
     lost control of what is said!  I think what you have done is just outstanding. If you
     are thinking of another publication, then my only suggestion is that a three volume
     work with the splits being between Army, Navy and Air Force would be the way to
     go. The book now is very big, and if it is larger, then maybe it should have a health
     warning, if dropped. I hope you sell a lot of these, Oh and Thank You very much for
     including me in your acknowledgements. Although I am still very much an amateur, I
     do appreciate the credit. You have taught me everything!
     Best regards, Sim London, UK

Had to collect a package from the post office. Imagine my suprise when I
opened it and saw your magnificant book. I immediately got into
reading the introduction. I have been working my way through the chapters - not
of a size for reading in bed! The photographs are certainly most impresive,and the
writing clear, concise and infomative. I am amazed you have put it all together in
such a short time. It goes to show what a boon this digital age has given us.

Feb 27, 2009 Konrad,
I have just had an opporunity to sit down and study your new book in detail. Wow,
it is a most impressive book, full of rich illustrations, orginal documents and supporting
data. There must be more British timepieces than German equivalents as the number of
pages is significatly more than your book on German military timepieces.
I think that this book is now the must have for information on this subject.

27.02.2009, Hi Konrad,
I don't really know what to say except ........ thank you for such a great book!  For
many people it will be the bible of british military timepieces for many years to
come and my favorite book for even longer; it's well written and full of interesting
information, one thing I really like is the great photos of watches in use, aircraft,
ships and other things usually not seen in a book such as this. To you Konrad I
wish the very best of luck with to book and for your future.
Best regards John  Asker  Norway

08.03.2009, Hello Konrad
Although somewhat late, this is to thank you very much for the copy of your
book which arrived safely just as I was leaving. While I was away I had the
chance to spend some time looking through it, and I really must congratulate
you on the  production of a landmark book. It certainly covers all aspects
of British Military Timepieces in great detail and much more, and I am certain
it will very quickly become recognized as the prime source of information on
the subject. Currently I am planning to show it and talk about it at our next
NAWCC Ottawa Chapter meeting at the end of March, and also perhaps at
a couple of other Eastern Canada Chapter meetings during the summer.
Thank you once again. Ben Roberts Ottawa Canada

31.03.2009, Lieber Herr Dr. Knirim,
gestern ist Ihr schwerer Brocken unbeschädigt eingetroffen. Ich danken
Ihnen ganz herzlich dafür und bewundere die viele Pionierarbeit die Sie
sich wieder gemacht haben. Ich habe alles an die Seite gelegt und erst einmal
ganz gespannt geblättert, gelesen und darüber gestaunt was es alles
gegeben hat. Es wird mich immer wieder beschäftigen, endlich ein Nachschlagewerk
zu diesem Thema. Herzlichen Glückwunsch dazu, ich bin begeistert.
Herzliche Grüße Henning, Hamburg Deutschland

The book has arrived today and, I have to say, it's superb. Your quality
of production and photos is the best in the industry and I'll admit that when
it comes to creating watch books, you're the world's number one....
All the Very Best, Marcus, Woodmansey UK

02.08.2009 Guten Tag Herr Knirim
letzte Woche hat mir mein Buchhändler Ihr neues Buch British Military
Timepieces ausgeliefert. Das Ding ist ein Hammer. Die Bildqualität und die
Vielfalt der abgebildeten Uhren ist umwerfend und die gebotene Fülle der
Information einmalig. Erstmals habe ich darin z.B. Uhren mit Markierungen
HS5-HS10 gesehen; üblicherweise sind nur  HS1 - HS4 erwähnt und abgebildet.
Am andern Ende der Skala ist erstmals die Bezeichnung GSTP plausibel aufgelöst. ...
Freundliche Grüsse aus der Schweiz: René,  Cham

17.10.2009 Hi Konrad,

I am already the proud owner of Konrad's German Timepieces book, and  I
ordered the British book.  It arrived in fine condition. I have already given it
a quick look, and the book is gorgeous. I have already found that all my
British timepieces are covered, even the black Smiths seen on page 391.
-Unfortunately, this book will surely stimulate my lust for additional British
timepieces. (one of my coworkers saw me smiling as I opened the box, and
then wryly commented I had received a book of "clock porn". Well, not quite.
I will really enjoy inspecting Konrad's new book more closely during the
Thanksgiving break. Ron, Kansas City USA

what can I say, your book is fascinating. Whats more it helped me to identify my
"L&S Kriegsmarine chronometer". In fact it is early postwar Glashutte production.
If it is not problem for you can I send you some photos to confirm my identification.
Besides that I wonder iof you can recomand me somebody to fix my chronometer,
main spring seems to be broken. Thank you.
Kind regards dr. S. Gustincic, Zagreb Croatia
