  1. York NAWCC Convention

    I had the pleasure of helping Dan Weiss sell The NAWCC 2011 Calendars at the convention. I also met many members of the NAWCC that participate on the MBs. In my opinion the convention was a success. There are some areas that need improvement, and in the furure I hope to make some recommendations The Museum was a surprise to me, it was more than I exspected. Having visited the great museums in England, the NAWCC is without a doubt one of the finest in the world. In addition to meeting Dan Weiss ...
  2. Yesterday...coming home from the Convention

    Yesterday, I came home from the 2010 June Convention held in York, PA.

  5. Traditional Bluing and Old Time Methods

    It's been my goal to revive the art of bluing and hand restoration for a couple years now. I've tried every method I could find, researched old books from the 1800's, and gotten advice from friends, collectors, and several watch makers. Much of the information I gathered was discarded, and much was only able to get me so far. My goal was to reach a point where the hands were comparable to factory new condition.
