This past fall, we told you all about an exceptional exhibition of historical clocks and watches showing at no less than New York’s famed Metropolitan Museum of Art (“The Met,” as it’s called colloquially). You can have a quick look at some of the incredible pieces on display here. Well you’re in for a treat, dear readers. Our very own managing editor – one of the great historical minds in horology – Mr. Jack Forster, will be gracing the stage of the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium this Sunday for a conversation and lecture about these wonderful objects.
Indeed, Jack will be speaking as part of the iconic “Sundays At The Met” series about the clocks and watches found in the “Luxury of Time” exhibition alongside Mr. Richard H. R. Harper, the principal scientist of Social Shaping Research at Cambridge. Yeah, it’s like that.
The talk begins at 2:30 and should run for one hour – admission is entirely free. It will take place this Sunday, February 28th, at New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. More details may be found here, and we all hope to see you there!
