• 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.

    Does this Bulova A-11 look authentic?

    As far as I know, the Bulova A-11 was used by the US Navy, USAAF and the British RAF. Some researchers believe that the lumed version was issued only to the US Navy. The domed crown on this one appears to be incorrect and the strap is certainly not like the original. Bulova movements hold up...

    Tiffany PW case housing a Hamilton 916 - how likely is that?

    How likely is it that a Tiffany 18K PW case and Tiffany dial are a good original match with a Hamilton 916 movement, c1926? I have such a combination, with engraving dated 1927 and the movement c1926. I've searched around the Internet for evidence of a Tiffany case housing a Hamilton movement...

    newbie needing help

    Certainly it's "worth fixing" but you are the only one who can really judge if it's worth it. Some would get it fixed just for the pleasure of getting it going; others would spend money on repairs if they think the resulting value of the watch is worth it in market terms. However, if you are in...

    newbie needing help

    Looks like a nice generic Swiss watch to me, Buzz. I doubt you will get more accurate information about the maker unless you post macro pics of the movement ... and then it may be impossible to identify. Did your watchmaker define "hosed"? There are many things that can happen to a balance...

    Odd 1942 Bulova w/ pushbutton crown

    Without discussing specific value, you got an excellent bargain. It should not be too hard to find another sweep second hand. Fixing the missing stem might be a more difficult task. Glyn You can discuss values on Global Horology

    Hamilton Tonneau sterling silver?

    The curvature and size of the bezel match the curvature of the pattern on the dial very well. If that's an original Hamilton dial, it seems more than coincidence that it's under this bezel. So, is that an authentic, original dial, or could it have been refinished to match the bezel? It seems...

    Troubleshooting Junghans ATO

    What is the voltage it should run on with the "old box battery" Chris? What voltage is written on the dead battery? If you gang positives and negatives you will be supplying around 1.6v - the cells will be in parallel. If there is a conversion on the market, that's probably how it's configured...
