    The National Watch & Clock Museum has announced that guest curator and horological instructor Adam Harris has been awarded the prestigious J. Bryson and Mary Lou Moore Distinguished Service Award. The award recognizes distinguished and outstanding service to the Museum. Candidates are nominated by the Museum and approved by the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors' (NAWCC) Museum Collections Committee, and are confirmed only with unanimous approval by the NAWCC Board of Directors.

    Harris has been a dedicated member of the Museum team in a variety of roles since first visiting the Museum in 2010. Initially, his work at the Museum was partially underwritten by the Gallet Watch Group, but his most recent tenures have been at his own expense.

    In 2012 Harris served as Gallet Guest Curator of Wristwatches, who identified and photographed all the wristwatches in the Museum collection. When he returned in 2013 from his home in Spain, Harris worked on and installed a new permanent wristwatch gallery using the Museum's wristwatch collection, objects on loan from third parties, and objects from his collection, which he donated to the Museum. Then in 2014, Adam, at his own expense, continued working on wristwatches, but also began a comprehensive review of the Museum's largely unphotographed horological tool collection. During this time he also started his very lucrative work with the development and presentation of NAWCC educational programs.

    Harris has served as instructor for an intensive course he researched and created titled "Luxury or Lie: Identifying the Genuine from the Fake." Adam has presented this highly successful course in many locations throughout the United States and overseas. He also developed a second course entitled "Evaluating Time: Researching, Identifying, and Valuing Wrist and Pocket Watches."

    The National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors, in association with the National Watch & Clock Museum, appreciates Harris's ongoing commitment and contributions to the Museum and congratulates Adam for attaining this prestigious honor.
