Fran Geier, a member of NAWCC, comments, “Horology is the art of making clocks and watches. The Annual Labor Weekend Mid-South Regional will showcase this art over two days of exhibits and lectures. The “Creations by Members” Exhibit will feature an extensive display of beautiful and unique watches, clocks and the horological tools made by NAWCC members, showcasing their extraordinary skill and artistry. The Mart, where browsers, collectors and hobbyists can purchase antique and modern clocks, watches, and all things horological, opens to the public on Saturday September 3 at 10 a.m. and on Sunday September 4 at 8 a.m. Added features include a silent auction, door prizes and free horological items. There will be two lectures on Saturday: Russ Youngs will present “Timeless Love: Building a Skelton Clock” at 10 a.m. and Geoff Parker will present “Building a Watch” at 2 p.m. Both will demonstrate how they created their horological masterpieces. We hope the general public will join us to enjoy and learn about the art and skill and goes into creating clocks and watches. And perhaps go home with a new treasure.”
