"Dutch forgery"H

Historically, the term "Dutch forgery" has referred to watches manufactured in the latter part of the 18th century purporting to have been made in London and yet created with Dutch physical characteristics. It has long been believed that these watches were not made in London, hence the application of "forgery," with the general assumption amongst antiquarian horologists being that Geneva was their true city of origin. At the October meeting of the Horological Society of New York, Rebecca Struthers will lecture on her thesis research concerning the aforementioned watches.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
