About the author

Zygmunt M. (Ziggy) Wesolowski is the son of a former combatant with the Polish 2nd Corps who after the war became a watch repairer; Ziggy would spend hours watching in fascination as the delicate mechanism came back to life under his father's fingers. Ziggy later became interested in military antiques, and these two passions come together in this book, which the author hopes will inspire readers in both militaria and horological circles to accord military timepieces the acknowledgement for which they are long overdue.
