Please Support Me In My Bid For An NAWCC Directorship

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.

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.

–The WWR Team

  1. Seriously — don’t waste your money people. The NAWCC is a joke. It is like a relic of the 1940’s. It is more about clocks than watches.

    I spent money for years and got -0- out of it. Just take a look at the website and you will see what I mean. The magazine is pathetic — something my grandpa would read (anitique clock repair…oooh exciting). As John mentioned above, the only halfway decent benefit (getting in to science centers) has NOTHING to even do with watches.

    Maybe if John gets in and spearheads some MAJOR changes, then it will be worth joining. Until then, run away and run fast.

  2. Doesn’t sound like your “Anon” commentator has been to the National Watch & Clock Museum lately.

    This impressive, thoroughly modern facility houses not just the management and publication operations, but also what I believe to be the largest independent collection of timepieces outside of Switzerland. Special exhibits, such as its recent collection of US presidential wrist- and pocket-watches dating back to George Washington, are utterly groundbreaking.

    Speaking a bit more personally, the current “Bond Watches, James Bond Watches” display enjoyed one of the biggest openings ever at the Museum last June. The concept speaks directly to what we’re looking for as insiders: To capture and excite broader interest in the history of wristwatches, their marketing, and technological evolution (and sometimes revolutionary change) through the decades.
