Mount Rainier Chapter 135 of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) is a group of 25-30 individuals who share a common interest in horology, the art and science of timekeeping. Membership is comprised of individuals who collect watches, clocks or both.
While membership is concentrated in the Seattle-Tacoma area, members come from all over the greater Puget Sound region to attend meetings and some belong to more than one NAWCC chapter. Meetings are usually held in the afternoons of the first Saturday of each month, include spouses, and are (typically) held in member’s homes.
Each meeting consists of a social hour (with refreshments), a brief business meeting, and a program. Programs may include discussions of horological topics from the technical to general interest items. At other times, a “Show & Tell” is held where members take turns showing items and briefly discussing them. At many meetings, a “Mart” is also held where members may bring items available for sale or trade.
