• Important Executive Director Announcement from the NAWCC

    The NAWCC Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Mr. Rory McEvoy has been named Executive Director of the NAWCC. Rory is an internationally renowned horological scholar and comes to the NAWCC with strong credentials that solidly align with our education, fundraising, and membership growth objectives. He has a postgraduate degree in the conservation and restoration of antique clocks from West Dean College, and throughout his career, he has had the opportunity to handle some of the world’s most important horological artifacts, including longitude timekeepers by Harrison, Kendall, and Mudge.

    Rory formerly worked as Curator of Horology at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, where his role included day-to-day management of research and digitization projects, writing, public speaking, conservation, convening conferences, exhibition work, and development of acquisition/disposal and collection care policies. In addition, he has worked as a horological specialist at Bonhams in London, where he cataloged and handled many rare timepieces and built important relationships with collectors, buyers, and sellers. Most recently, Rory has used his talents to share his love of horology at the university level by teaching horological theory, history, and the practical repair and making of clocks and watches at Birmingham City University.

    Rory is a British citizen and currently resides in the UK. Pre-COVID-19, Rory and his wife, Kaai, visited HQ in Columbia, Pennsylvania, where they met with staff, spent time in the Museum and Library & Research Center, and toured the area. Rory and Kaai will be relocating to the area as soon as the immigration challenges and travel restrictions due to COVID-19 permit.

    Some of you may already be familiar with Rory as he is also a well-known author and lecturer. His recent publications include the book Harrison Decoded: Towards a Perfect Pendulum Clock, which he edited with Jonathan Betts, and the article “George Graham and the Orrery” in the journal Nuncius.

    Until Rory’s relocation to the United States is complete, he will be working closely with an on-boarding team assembled by the NAWCC Board of Directors to introduce him to the opportunities and challenges before us and to ensure a smooth transition. Rory will be participating in strategic and financial planning immediately, which will allow him to hit the ground running when he arrives in Columbia

    You can read more about Rory McEvoy and this exciting announcement in the upcoming March/April issue of the Watch & Clock Bulletin.

    Please join the entire Board and staff in welcoming Rory to the NAWCC community.

    Grandfathers Benrus

    I'm not a watch maker so I have no idea of how to take out the movement, but I understand what your saying. I put the watch in a safty deposit box. Perhaps one day I will take it to someone that can service it and tell me more about the movement. Thanks for your reply.

    Here are some before pictures. The bracelet has a hole that was used to place a Saint Christopher pendant through. Saint Christopher is known as the patron saint of travelers. I guess it was good enough for safe diving also.

    Rolex Double Red Sea Dweller

    I had lost the bezel/insert while on a dirt bike a few years ago and knew that it would be expensive to have it serviced so I waited. Back in 95' when I had it serviced they wanted to replace the bracelet and I told them I couldn't afford it so they sent it back with a watch service and new...

    Rolex Double Red Sea Dweller

    I recently had my watch worked on in the NYC service center. I thought you all might like a peek at this model and see what all the fuss is about. It was my fathers and I have owned it since his passing in 93' and have been wearing it every since. I had it serviced in 95' in Dallas and in NYC...
