MICRO EXHIBITS DEBUT AT NATIONAL WATCH & CLOCK MUSEUM
To examine in-depth specific topics in the permanent wristwatch exhibit, the National Watch and Clock Museum has adopted the concept of “micro-exhibits.” Each micro-exhibit is limited to one or two display cases placed prominently at the front of the wristwatch display. The first of two micro-exhibits includes a display of novelty wristwatches from the early twentieth century to the present; the second displays watch brands and models worn by James Bond including the "original", Ian Fleming’s Rolex. The latter Curated by James Bond watch expert Dell Deaton.
