In 2016, the Horological Society of New York (HSNY) took its horological education classes on the road, visiting Miami, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The classes sold out quickly and were full of enthusiastic students, all eager to learn how a mechanical watch works first-hand. The response to the classes was incredible. For 2017, HSNY will continue its educational tour by visiting cities across the country, with the first two stops being Chicago and Philadelphia.
Horological Education classes will be offered in Chicago over the weekend of February 11, at Oak & Oscar’s beautiful new offices. The next weekend, that of February 18, HSNY will head east to Philadelphia, where it will hold classes at Pipeline Workspaces in Center City.
At HSNY’s award-winning classes, students discover what makes a watch tick. The hands-on course is taught by HSNY’s staff of professional watchmakers. Students work on a mechanical watch movement, studying the gear train, winding and setting mechanisms, and escapement. This four-hour course covers everything taught during the four individual courses usually held in New York City.
Enrollment is now open for the Chicago and Philadelphia classes, and tickets are sure to go quickly.
