BACKROOM CURIOSITIES: Your chance to view hidden treasures rarely seen by the public!
The National Watch & Clock Museum has amassed its collection of more than twelve thousand objects over the course of forty-plus years. There are a number of objects in the collection that, while they may not fit neatly into the broader story told by the Museum, are nonetheless aesthetically pleasing, horologically interesting or in some cases, odd. This exhibit is intended to pull the curtain back on some of the objects that rarely are seen or appreciated due to their being kept in storage most of the time... our Backroom Curiosities.
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.
