Learn about us! Join us! Come celebrate with us!

Since its beginning in 1943 the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, Inc. (NAWCC) has grown into the world's largest museum, research library, educational institution, and international community of horological professionals and enthusiasts dedicated to clocks, watches, time, and timekeeping. Located on the western edge of Lancaster County in Columbia, PA, we are the best kept secret in all of Pennsylvania, and maybe even the world! On the evening of November 29, 2017, NAWCC will host an event to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the opening of our world famous museum, the National Watch & Clock Museum. In 2018 we mark the arrival of our 75th year by celebrating several historic milestones for our organization including our 75th Diamond Jubilee Anniversary, and the accompanying 2018 National Convention in York, PA. We therefore invite you to join us in celebrating our many achievements spanning a long and distinguished history, as we commit ourselves to being the world leader, educator, and advocate for horology and for everyone who is interested in timepieces and horological issues.

Please search our website and learn more about our events and how you can participate. Explore and find out why becoming a member of the NAWCC may be the best investment you will ever make in your pursuit, passion, interest, or overall understanding and knowledge of clocks, watches, time, and timepieces.
