Of all the calendars I have produced the first three were of my beloved Frankie Weiss and Johnnie #1. The felines that recharged my life after my wife passed away.

I then had an epiphany, why not make calendars featuring our NAWCC watches and clocks,
the NAWCC Calendar was born in 2007. In 2008, we featured watches from a Chapter no longer connected to the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors.

I think the cover of the 2008 Calendar features the most beautiful watch ever it was my pleasure to use on the cover page of the Calendars.

The picture features Alexander II of Czarist Russia. Double click on photo to enlarge.

My friend Shutterbug:

As far as I remember the watch at the time of printing in 2008, was owned by someone south of the USA border, it may have been Bolivia. However, I cannot be certain.

As for long living, I can remember the horse ##### on our city streets, as well as hitching posts and water troughs for horses to drink from. Did you know we had trolley cars that had a side opening to transport caskets to funeral grounds in a number of Philadelphia city areas. I remember the hand cranked automobiles and the 10c movie houses, I think Philadelphia at that time had more than two and a half million citizens and we were the breadbasket of the world. Times certainly have changed, many to the good, while others became detrimental to city life. We even had outhouses! And. policemen walking their beats with batons as their weapon of choice.
