“Tips on Collecting Clocks and Watches”

Postby koimaster » June 28th 2017, 4:16pm

Besides being the WatchNews Editor, I am also the Creative Services Production Leader, photographing, designing, and laying out many projects. A recent project was to reprint the “Tips on Collecting Clocks and Watches” booklet given to each new member of the NAWCC.

Initially, I was asked to simply locate the original document and set it up for an outside printer. When I saw the original booklet, I knew a redesign was in order, because the cover did not reflect the interests of our members nor the title and subject matter of the book.

To remedy this, I asked Museum Director Noel Poirier what the most sought-after and collectible pieces in the National Watch and Clock Museum are. He suggested the following: a Joseph Ives shelf clock, a Hamilton Piping Rock, and a William Wallace Dudley Masonic pocket watch. I also included a digital and Apple Watch to reflect the modern tastes our members may have. We chose the cover color to attract more purchases in our Museum Gift Shop.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
