We fully support the mission of the National Association Of Watch And Clock Collectors (NAWCC), which is to spread the word about watches (and clocks) and get more people interested in them. On May 18th in Ohio they are having their North Coast Regional Watch and Clock show. Basically you go there to buy, sell, and appreciate lots of different watches and clocks. Deals are to be had, and there will be lots of vintage pieces. Of course you need to be in the Cleveland area to participate, but if you are then you should stop by. It only costs $5, and that price helps keep the association going strong.
