The National Watch & Clock Museum is hosting a special Extraordinary Give event on Friday, November 17, 2017. Sponsored by a partnership of Horst Insurance and Chubb Insurance Company, the event invites attendees to bring in their clock or watch to be historically evaluated and to speak with insurance representatives about insuring their collectibles.
Attendees will also be able to use the Museum and Library computer workstations to make an ExtraGive donation to the Museum (or other charity of their choice). On November 17 donate online at ExtraGive.org and your generous gift will be stretched by at least a half million dollars in stretch pool and prizes from the Lancaster County Community Foundation and sponsors. Help us go the EXTRA mile together!
Dell Deaton, of JamesBondWatches.com, will present “The Internet Made James Bond Watches Collectable” for the National Watch & Clock Museum's TIMEtalk series on Saturday, November 18, from 11 a.m. to noon in the Museum's theater. Come and learn how the Internet influenced the collectability of Bond watches.
