This week’s entry in Historical Horology is one that will encourage you to step away from your desk chair (or wherever you’re reading this), and head on over to museum.
Over at the Frick Collection (in New York), they’ve currently got an exhibition entitled “Precision and Splendor: Clocks and Watches at the Frick Collection”. While they’ve got pieces ranging from the 14th to the 19th centuries, quite a few Brequet models are prominently featured (as befits a major sponsor for the exhibit).
All in all, it looks like a very interesting cultural (and historical) outing you could make. If you’d like to whet your appetite some more, I’d suggest checking out this article (and video), and then head on over if you’re in that area.
If you do go, let us know in the comments what you thought!
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
