It’s almost time for Gotham Hall for Watchtime New York’s seventh annual weekend showcase of the most sought-after watch releases from the past year. The event, which runs from October 21-23, is a great opportunity for watch-world newcomers, fans and industry professionals to gather around their most common interest.
If one event isn’t enough to satisfy your watch fix, the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) is hosting Time Symposium In association with the Horological Society of New York. The event will be held on October 21st and 22nd at the General Society of Mechanics & Tradesmen in New York City in midtown Manhattan.
The Time Symposium highlights iconic collectors of watches and clocks who recognize the enduring historical, technological, cultural and aesthetic values of horology. The convention was the first of its kind to emphasize masterful collectors, including the likes of JP Morgan. Their collections are preserved in museums around the world and are well documented in books, pamphlets and auction catalogs dating back to the 18th century.
Symposium programs are of interest to scholars and collecting students in general, recruiting the best of their kind to participate. The closing dinner for the symposium will be held at the elegant Harvard Club in New York City, where renowned experts and scholars will speak about their own personal experiences in collecting.
Robert C. Cheney, executive director and curator of the Willard House & Clock Museum, will talk about Old Sturbridge Village’s extensive clock collection, which generously underwrites his exhibit. Others included scholars and distinguished speakers from America, England and Germany.
Watchtime readers have access to symposium registration and a special $50 discount on dinner with the code WT-SYMPOSIUM-2022. Advanced registration is required and the last date to register is October 12.
