NAWCC Chapter 135 Mount Rainier

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 and couples who are interested in all aspects of collecting watches and clocks. This also includes history of watches and/or clocks repairing restoration and manufacturing clocks and watches.

While membership is concentrated in the Tacoma to Seattle our members come from as far south as Olympia all the way to Bellingham or basically the entire Puget Sound Pacific Northwest region.  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.
