    This section is for breaking news in all areas of horology. It may be about new products or maybe about new discoveries from ancient days. The focus is anything cool that most people are just learning about. ...

    The NAWCC Message Board is divided into content areas that provide for question and answer discussions (Forum), personal views in blog format (Our Voices), organized articles about horology and the community (Timely Topics) and more formal articles that represent the current viewpoint and best known facts about various areas of horology (Encyclopedia).


    Registered users are free to post questions in the Forums and other members will attempt to provide accurate answers or may extend the questions to broader areas. The Forums are very loosely structured and interactive. Each Forum has a general category that it attempts to cover so it is important to ask questions in the correct category. Once you have selected a Forum you can click on the button on the upper left labeled Start New Thread. A thread is a bit of jargon for a connected set of posts (questions, answers, comments) on a general topic or set of related topics.

    If you are reading a thread and want to comment on it or supply an answer you can click on the Reply button or just fill in you comments in the quick reply box below the discussion and click submit.

    Tom McIntyre's watch has the correct dial. The Jobe Watch shown by Dave Chaplain almost certainly had a Jobe marked dial on it when it was sold. I have
