You are invited
Investment potential? Absolutely.
Historically relevant? More than ever!
Collectable, super cool and sophisticated? Yes, and that is just the start of our exciting journey!
No, we are not talking about Rolex or Patek - we are talking about Australian Government-issued railway timepieces from the 1880’s till the 1980’s. A fascinating horological story written for over a century, still to be told, and recorded for generations to come.
It is my pleasure to invite a handful of subscribers to an upcoming watch talk night. The goal is to share the little I know about Railway pocket watches, and show you some of the examples I've unearthed so far. I’ll also guide you on how to start collecting pocket watches in general: from practical tips on models, brands, periods, mechanisms and styles, down to an assessment of online and over the counter pieces.
As always, seats are strictly limited so we need to hear from you as soon as possible. At this stage, the proposed date is Wednesday 7 August from 5:30-7:30 pm.
Cost per person: $90 with light refreshments and coffee included.
This presentation is suited to all enthusiasts, regardless of age.
