About Us

Big Bend Timekeepers is a chapter of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. The chapter was formed in December 1998 by a dozen founding members. Our diverse membership, which includes two NAWCC Fellows, primarily reside in North Central Florida and South Georgia. Some members come from as far as Albany, GA, Panama City, Dowling Park, and Jacksonville, FL.

Our Mission

We strive to provide a forum dedicated to promoting and encouraging the collective interests of horology and all aspects of the art and science of timekeeping.

Our Vision

To advance the future of horology through the collective knowledge of the history, art, and science of timekeeping.

Each meeting, which typically includes 25 - 30 members and guests, begins as a casual gathering with a mart where members offer horological items for sale or trade, discuss or show their recent acquisitions, and engage in conversation and fellowship. A formal business meeting comes next and is followed by a lecture from a member or guest on some aspect of horology. Lunch follows the lecture. Guests or persons interested in membership are invited to attend.
