Horology played an important role in World War Two. The Hamilton Watch Co. is well remembered for the spectacular achievement of mass producing the Marine Chronometer and the many other timepieces they made for all branches of military. Other watch and clock companies also produced a wide variety of timepieces for the war effort. One product, the War Alarm, was produced for the civilian population in response to a critical need of this cheap and mundane timepiece. This webinar, presented by Al Dodson, will discuss the War Alarm and present photos, vintage advertisements, and other documents to illustrate this need and how the government and manufacturers responded.

About the Speaker: Al Dodson is an AWCI Certified Master Clockmaker. Most recently he served as lead clock instructor for the School of Horology. He also has a degree in Micro Precision Technology, has upgraded his skills throughout his career with continuing education, and has over 25 years of experience in clock repair, including management of his own shop in Lexington, KY. His father was a watchmaker, and Al has carried on his father's interests in both the theoretical and practical aspects of horological craftsmanship. Al Dodson is a NAWCC Fellow, contributes to the Education Committee, and has been actively involved in horological education programs for NAWCC members. He has presented many programs at local and regional meetings and was a presenter at the 2007 NAWCC National Convention.

While the name Andrew V. Strait might not be recognizable to many advertising clock collectors and aficionados, his clocks, generally referred to as "Sidney Advertising Clocks" surely are. Strait's story is one of real genius, wherein his skills as a clock maker merged with his unique ideas on profiting through the medium of advertising to create a new segment in American horology. This presentation, based almost entirely on primary sources, will provide the history of Strait and his various advertising clock models, as well as lesser known inventions, including what he called the "first electric alarm clock."

About the Speaker: The presentation will be made by Russ Oechsle, co-author of the 2003 NAWCC publication "An Empire In Time - Clocks and Clock Makers of Upstate, New York."
