Clocksmiths is for those who have either a direct or indirect tie to horology with the focus on repair, sales and expertise.
We discuss Repair, Procurement of Materials and Services, Research, Selling, Construction, Preservation, Clock Appraising,
and the Business of Running a Repair/Retail Shop.
Clocksmiths is devoted to those intently involved in the horological trade.
We are trying to limit membership to those that, at least somewhat, depend on repairs and/or sales as some source
of income and if not then we'd like those that can bring significant expertise in one or more specific areas of horology.
Those who made their living from horology and are now retired are welcome as well. We are not looking to be a
teaching group per say, so beginners looking for instruction are asked not to apply.
Your membership affiliation with NAWCC, AWCI, or other recognized horological affiliation is a plus but does not
automatically qualify you for admission. The NAWCC and others are great organizations but our concern is that they
usually promotes "freebies" and not paid professional service. We are not knocking these organizations, but being
a member of these organizations does not tell us if you are in the repair field seriously.
