The Horological Society of New York, the oldest watchmaking guild in America, formed 1866, is one of the world's leading educators on all things watchmaking and horology.

When we say it will be an exclusive opportunity, we are not overstating things. Just 32 chairs will be available – and we know that several of those have already been snapped up by the watch addicts in the @timetideclub , which you can join (and by doing so gain access to the Closed Insts group) at www.timeandtide.club if you haven't already.…
