Troalen, Lore, Cox, Darren, Skinner, Theo, Ramsey, Andrew and Bate, David (2010) Three dimensional Computed Tomography X-radiographic investigation of a 17th Century watch from the wreck of the Swan. International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, 39 (1). pp. 165-171.

The objects recovered from the Swan have already been the subject of a number of publications. The aim of this article is to provide an in-depth study of the pocket-watch, using Three Dimensional Computed Tomography (3D-CT) X-ray scanning. The structural information that survived exceeded expectations and made a virtual reconstruction of the mechanism possible. The very high resolution provided by the scan enabled the engraving of the maker's name to be visualised and confirmed the date of the watch.
