Special Announcement regarding Coronavirus
At the time of writing there appears to be no end in sight to the current social distancing requirements. Sadly, I must therefore advise that our normal monthly meetings in Godstone continue to be cancelled.
More positively, your committee is very pleased to announce that it is arranging on line meetings. Whilst we would like these to be monthly, these on line meetings are very dependent on finding suitable subjects and speakers. These meetings will only be accessible to members who will be sent joining details.

This time Justin will be presenting a talk on the restoration and history of a friend’s long-case clock with an interesting background.
Justin has been Technical Editor of the Horological Journal since 2006 and has also written many articles for the journal, the latest being in the April issue, “Magnetic Resistant Watches” a review of the revision of the ISO 764 standard. He is also an elected Board Member of the BHI.
Justin is a co-founder of Watch Club in The Royal Arcade London specialising in buying and selling the world’s finest pre-owned watches.
