Education is the heart of our mission.
The NAWCC is the clearinghouse for sharing horological knowledge and skills. Classes and workshops tell the fascinating stories of horology, cover various watch and clock topics, and preserve the knowledge of horological craftsmanship. Workshops are opportunities to learn about and care for your timepiece. Through hands-on learning, these workshops and classes can build your confidence, knowledge, and skills in watch and clock repair and maintenance. Whether it is the technology of timekeeping or the nature and meaning of time itself, our educational programs expand horizons and provide answers.
The NAWCC‘s goal is to educate not only the professional but to reach out to the student and amateur horologist and to help expand their knowledge. While learning is its own reward, it also provides opportunities for building lasting friendships.

Colonial & Early American Watchmakers
The first watchmakers emigrated from England to the American colonies over 300 years ago and mark the true beginning of the American watch industry long before the idea of mass production entered the minds of the Pitkin brothers and A. L. Dennison. This presentation focuses on 18th century American watchmakers, their timepieces and the environment in which they worked.
Richard Newman is an active supporter of the NAWCC's education mission and services as Chairman of the Board. He has lectured at The Ward Francillon Time Symposium, National Conventions and Regional events, and has written over 20 articles on both clocks & watches for the Bulletin and other publications. He additionally hosts a website on colonial and early American watchmakers, www.colonialwatches.com to promote research and education.
