Snooping around on the fhs.ch website, I found this horological dictionary. Not only are thousands of terms explained and some of them illustrated, but it is available in FRENCH, ENGLISH, GERMAN and SPANISH.

Sometimes good things are free in life!

Illustrated Professional Dictionary of Horology

You can also buy the printed version from the FHS e-Shop.


A sample from the dictionary:
A
Plain balance or monometal(lic) balance, an uncut ring made of a single metal (brass, German silver or glucinum bronze), coupled with a compensating balance-spring of the elinvar type (metelinvar, isoval, nivarox). The balance need have no compensating effect, as the elasticity of the spring is hardly affected by changes of temperature


The really brilliant thing of having this electronic dictionary are the blue cross links (I have colored them blue in this post, but of course they are working at the link below)
