    The Museum

    I visited the NAWCC Museum today for the first time. My wife and I had attended a wedding in Lancaster and I couldn't pass up the chance to check out the museum. What an impressive display of time, timekeeping, clocks and watches! Even my wife who is not a watch geek like me was impressed and left with a much better understanding of watches and clocks. If you are anywhere near the area and don't visit the museum, you will be missing a real treasure. A big thanks to everyone at NAWCC that had anything to do with inspiration and creation of the museum. Can't wait to stop by there again!

    Hi
    Welcome
    Glad to hear both you and your wife enjoyed it.
    If you had let me know, I would have arranged a tour. I was in all day to-day, upstairs giving my course.

    Thanks your visit

    It was another great day at the museum yesterday.I also went to visit Roland at RGM watches and got a tour of his shop. Super nice guy and was excellent to see where my RGM watch was "born". Impressive what is being manufacture here in the US.

    I will be back in the area again soon. I left a vintage piece for Roland to service so I will be taking a ride to the museum again soon.

    Re: The Museum

    I live in Philly, and have in-laws that live in Lancaster, my brother in law is a watch fan like me,(he is a huge Hamilton fan) and we always talk about going to the Museum, but every time we are up there with our families, time seems to run out. I am really looking forward to being able to stop by at some point! also RGM if available. Im working on getting my 3 boys into watches, and teaching them about mechanical things in life.
