    Pack a lunch and join the National Watch and Clock Museum for its Lunch "Time" presentation, "The Legacy of the Luther Goddard Pocket Watch," on Wednesday, August 16. Museum Director Noel Poirier will provide an overview of the life and career of Goddard, America's first watch manufacturer, and the legacy of rare and fine workmanship he left for future watchmakers.

    An entrepreneur, Goddard is considered to be one of the earliest American watchmakers and the first watchmaker to create serialized, or numbered, timepieces. Goddard's story is one of opportunity, global trade, ingenuity, and setback—a microcosm of the greater forces of the past and present world.

    The Museum invites the public to join in a casual conversation and understanding of the story behind this piece. "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 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 October 18 and December 13.
