Please Support Me In My Bid For An NAWCC Directorship

Posted on 14 October 2010 by John Biggs

If you’re into watches and clocks you should be a member of the NAWCC. That’s my first message. As for my second message, I’m currently in the running to become an NAWCC director and my goal is to help the organization reach a much wider audience. The group, besides being a great place to meet other horology freaks, is dedicated to education and outreach and they offer a number of excellent workshops, a museum, and a nice horology library. Members also get in free at multiple science centers across the nation, so that’s a big plus. They also produce a beautiful magazine every month.

I would like to join the board and would love your support. You can read my statement here and you’ll be able to vote this winter. If you’re a member, pop in and send me message about your experiences with the org. If you’re not a member, become one. Seriously.

Posted on 14 October 2010 by John Biggs

It has a definite Speedmaster feel to it. Ir runs a nice ETA 2895 for the three hand version (the 123) and a 2894 for the 126 chrono version. It is 41mm and comes in steel with anti-reflective domed crystal.

Perrelet Goes High Class With the Regulator Retrograde

Posted on 06 October 2010 by John Biggs

Not much to say right now on this but I do love the face on this Regulator Retrograde from Perrelet. Considering these guys usually make their famous rotor watches, this is a refreshing change.

This rare combination of complications- the separate indication of the hours and minutes and the retrograde hour, demonstrate the inventiveness and know-how of Perrelet.
