• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

It's Lunch Time

Pack a lunch and join the National Watch and Clock Museum for its Lunch "Time" presentation, Saved from the Fire: The Fechter Collection, Wednesday, June 14. Museum Director Noel Poirier will provide an up-close examination of a generous donation of historic documents to the Museum.

Edward Fechter, the last mechanical superintendent at Hamilton Watch Co. in Lancaster, PA, saved dozens of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century engineering drawings depicting watch movements and tooling from Hamilton Watch Co., Illinois Watch Co., and Waltham Watch Co.

The Museum invites the public to join in a casual conversation and examination of these documents. "We wanted to provide a more intimate opportunity for people to discover objects from the Museum collection, or learn about important and interesting aspects of the history of time and timekeeping. We thought a brown bag lunch would be the perfect fit," explains Museum Director Noel Poirier.

Lunch "Time" is a complimentary educational program that will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. and will continue every other month. Future dates include August 16, October 18, and December 13.
