As most of you know, WatchUSeek has grown to be the world's largest watch forum with more topics, traffic, and members than any other. With this position has come the responsibility of assisting the good efforts of others to further our whole community of watch lovers and collectors.
One of the other members of this community is the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. Headquartered in Columbia Pennsylvania USA (a suburb of Lancaster where Hamilton was founded) the NAWCC has the world's leading collection of clocks and pocket watches and the world's best horological library and archives.
In their own words,the NAWCC's mission is to advance the art and science of horology (timekeeping). The NAWCC actively serves the public and supports NAWCC members by providing educational opportunities, encouraging preservation, facilitating research, publishing horological works, providing online venues for information exchange, and sponsoring events. The National Watch and Clock Museum and the NAWCC Library preserve a diverse collection of timekeeping artifacts, books, and archival materials. The NAWCC's U.S. and International Chapters also host educational events and exhibits relating to horology. Since 1943 this non-profit organization has grown from 52 Charter Members to an international organization with more than 15,000 members and over 100 Chapters.
To support the NAWCC WUS has created a NAWCC discussion forum. It will host announcements, discussions, and hopefully provide exposure of the good works of the NAWCC to a wider audience. Join us in welcoming the NAWCC to the WUS community and please consider joining the NAWCC and supporting their efforts to further the science of horology.
