I've loved clocks and watches since I was a kid and I'm also fascinated by the nature of time itself. Since I also love learning and writing it seemed natural to put together this site. As you'll see, my interest is far wider than the traditional view of horology as all about cogs and pendulums. I find timepieces beautiful and time itself fascinating. Even the words are fascinating - horology, Therbligs and the German "Uhren".
I also try not to be snobbish - at least not too much! A cool new Japanese watch with geeky features can be as much fun as a traditional mechanical timepiece, if less enduring.
horology-stuff will give me an opportunity to expand my own knowledge and share it with others. Hopefully some of my enthusiasm for the subject will rub off on you!
Please note that I'm just a fan, not an expert. I'm not an academic, artisan or antiquarian. I can't give you advice on identifying, fixing or valuing your timepiece. Sorry.
