Event Details

This lecture will cover the very basics of modern clockwork, with an introduction associating students with the history of horology. Escapements, gears, drives, and more will be discussed. At the end of the one hour lecture there will be some examination of clocks provided by the lecturer. Students are asked to bring any interesting clocks (not watches, and nothing electrical) for potential examination. Very interesting clocks will have some history exposed by the lecturer, John Metcalfe. Think of it as a very informal antique roadshow, with some dissasembly included :).

 

John is originally from London and now operates a clock repair shop in New York City. He once was the Conservator of the- NAWCC Museum, and also conducted clock repair classes for the NAWCC. He is a Craft Member of the British Horological Institute.
