Fun You Can Watch
Have you heard of Mary Babcock? What about W. C. Shelton or Professor Louis Lehmann? They are some of the delightful characters from the history of American watchmaking I learned about while working on Vortic’s Map of the Great American Watch Companies. The map, now available for purchase on vorticwatches.com, includes a brief history, production numbers, and a couple of fun facts about each of the ten most influential American Watch Companies.
Last November more than 160 NAWCC members, staff, friends, and supporters — including representatives from modern watch brands RGM Watch Co. and F.P. Journe — gathered to celebrate the Watch & Clock Museum's 40th Anniversary. A 40th Anniversary commemorative booklet is now available!
