Essential Classics: The Original Swatch Watch
The Swatch name may mean ‘second watch’, but the brand is first in many horology-loving hearts. Swatch calls its watches “an expression of joy, a provocative statement, a warm smile delivered with a flick of the wrist” – which seems flowery, frivolous and outrageous at first, until you remember those qualities are exactly what you love about Swatch in the first place. Swatch is about having fun, inciting revolution, tapping into pop culture, and never taking life too seriously.
Eberman’s son, Joseph, rebuilt the clock in 1854. And it was rebuilt again by Godfried M. Zahm in 1878.
The museum plans to get the clock’s gears working and hopes to learn more about which pieces are from the original and which were added later, Poirier said.
The clock — which was wound once per week and kept time during Lancaster’s 13 years as the state capital 1799-1812 — is a rare piece, he said.
Our Gallet guest curator of wristwatches, Adam Harris will discuss the “genesis” of the automatic wristwatch 1922 to 1940s. Adam will also present some of his research findings during his stay as a guest wristwatch curator, including important and updated NAWCC collection items descriptions, early patents and WWI photographs.

Young watchmaker pursues lifelong fixation
When he was done hand-finishing the stainless-steel case of one of his timepieces in a whirring industrial polisher, watchmaker Cameron Weiss carefully submerged it in an ultrasonic cleaning tank.
When all the impurities had been blasted off the case, Weiss removed it from the machine — and knocked his head on a frying pan suspended from a hanging pot rack.
His cramped kitchen filled with a shrill metal clang.
These aren't the tradition-bound halls of a Swiss watchmaking facility, and Weiss doesn't have a graying beard, continental accent and loupe affixed to his eye.

18th century Lancaster clock that kept time for 100+ years goes on display Friday
Noel B. Poirier, director of the National Watch & Clock Museum in Columbia, has a new, favorite piece.
It's the movement, or time-keeping innards, of the tower clock that kept time in the Lancaster County Courthouse from 1785 until it was replaced in 1898.
It was built by John Eberman Jr., a Lancaster clock maker, for a new county courthouse on Penn Square after a fire destroyed the courthouse there in 1784.
