Founded in 1943, The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, Inc. (NAWCC) is a nonprofit scientific organization that serves as a unique educational, cultural, and social resource for its membership and the public at large.
Members include hobbyists, students, educators, casual collectors, and professionals in related retail and manufacturing trades. The one common bond (and main membership requirement) is a fascination with the art and science of timekeeping (horology).
Of course, Members also share a number of tangible benefits, including yearly subscriptions to two quality NAWCC publications; participation in Regional and National Conventions and trading Marts; local Chapter activities; workshops and educational seminars held throughout the nation; and complimentary admission to the National Watch & Clock Museum in Columbia, Pennsylvania, the Western Hemisphere’s largest museum devoted to timepieces and timekeeping.
The American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute (AWCI) is the premier organization dedicated to the timekeeping or horology industry. Our goal is to promote the highest standards of workmanship in the horological crafts.
It is the role of AWCI to:
- Promote the horology industry
- Support clockmaking and watchmaking schools and provide continuing education
- Set a standard of excellence through certification
- Provide numerous professional services to members

Watchmaking is a unique industry where passion, art, and science meet. A heritage of more than 60 years of watchmaking instruction, combined with a $1 million, 5-year grant from Rolex, gives graduating students the knowledge, skills, certifications, and connections to industry necessary to excel in this profession
