Our webinar series program is starting back up this month with: The War Alarm: on January 25, 2015 7:00 PM EST. Please register for this free webinar at the link:
Horology played an important role in World War Two. The Hamilton Watch Co. is well remembered for the spectacular achievement of mass producing the Marine Chronometer and the many other timepieces they made for all branches of military. Other watch and clock companies also produced a wide variety of timepieces for the war effort. One product, the War Alarm, was produced for the civilian population in response to a critical need of this cheap and mundane timepiece. This webinar, presented by Al Dodson, will discuss the War Alarm and present photos, vintage advertisements, and other documents to illustrate this need and how the government and manufacturers responded.
