One thought on “Velociphile Wants to Know All About You”
  1. I read one of your blogs where you talked about the technology of watches. I would like to ask your help.

    I am creating a online pocketwatch museum, named obviously pocketwatchmuseum.com. I am starting with a 150 watch collection my mother has assembled.

    My problem is that I know nothing about pocket watch technology and need to learn quickly. Do you have any basic references that can show me how to identify escapements and other watch characteristics?

    I also need to know how someone might want to visit such a museum. How do they want to search and what do they want to see?

    Thanks if you can help,

    Michael
