Details

‘Precision is an integral, unchallenged, and seemingly essential component of our modern social, mercantile, scientific, mechanical, and intellectual landscapes’ – yet most people are not entirely sure what precision is.  From John ‘Iron-Mad’ Wilkinson’s work on steam engines in late 18th-century Britain to Seiko’s factory in Morioka, Japan and its quartz watches that proved too precise for some people, Simon Winchester’s history of precision describes inventors and inventions as diverse as guns, jet engines and Leica lenses.
