The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors

We provide Knowledge!

In 1943, three watch collectors formed a club for horology enthusiasts called The Watch Collectors Club. When the club added clock collectors, they changed the name to the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors. Today, the NAWCC has nearly 10,000 members worldwide.

The NAWCC is committed to being the world leader, educator, and advocate for horology and for everyone interested in timepieces and the art and science of timekeeping.


The Museum in Columbia, PA features the largest collection of timepieces in North America – more than 13,000 from around the world, including a German table clock from about 1570. Visiting the NAWCC Museum is the closest you can come to time travel. From prehistory to the space age, the items on display delight visitors of all ages.


Experience the NAWCC’s Mission in School of Horology Classes The NAWCC is committed to being the world leader, educator, and advocate for horology and for everyone interested in timepieces and the art and science of timekeeping.

The Fortunat Mueller-Maerki Library & Research Center (LARC) is one of the largest in the world dedicated to the study of time and timekeeping. The collection includes books, videos, catalogs, periodicals and archival material.
