The “Specialty Chapters” Exhibit will feature an extensive display of beautiful and unique watches, carriage clocks, tower clock movements, restoration of dials and reverse painted glass. The Craft Exhibit will showcase the extraordinary skill and artistry of the members from clock and watch restoration, manufacturing complete clocks and watches and specialty skills of artwork and woodworking. The Mart, where browsers, collectors and hobbyists can purchase antique and modern clocks, watches, and all things horological, opens to the public on Saturday, June 15, at 9 a.m. The National Convention was last held in Chattanooga in 2015 and this show will bring together members from over a hundred local chapters throughout the world that hold collector marts, educational programs and produce publications. We are anticipating 500 attendees and over 400 mart tables of horological items. We hope the general public will join us to enjoy and find a treasure.”
