    NAWCC RADIUM DISPLAY

    Thought you may like to see our latest display in the wristwatch section, this now completes all display cabinets.
    You can read my original blog here "Transformation in Time:Transformation in Time | nawcc/watchnews

    Well following on from that, the last remaining display cabinet is complete.

    First to emphasize safety, the cabinet has been closely checked from every aspect with a Geiger Counter, and predominantly displayed"

    Safety First:












    The Approach to a "magnificent" wristwatch section.

    Interesting display - but I'm afraid you've misspelt "Geiger" in the first photo.....

    Actually, it was already swapped out as "precaution" was also spelled wrong LOL

    Thanks

    Thank Nick
    Appreciated. I did not do it all, the Curator chose pieces and layed out, actually I only wrote the item descriptions.

    So NOT all my work!

    You might not of done all of it, but you contributed arguably the best part! Anyone who has an interest will think it's neat to look at the pieces but what good is that if you are left thinking "What the hell am i looking at?".
