NAWCC Watch & Clock Podcast Episode 6: Tempus Ex Machina
In this podcast, we interview Mark Frank who, 12 years ago, commissioned a complex astronomical skeleton clock to be built by Buchanan of Chelmsford, a brilliant engineer in Australia. Frank describes the clock as being "born of a happy convergence of artist and artisan, exuberant creativity, and exquisite craftsmanship." Now that the clock is completed, Frank reflects on the creative process, collaboration, and building of the clock along with the many challenges and discoveries on the way to its completion.
NAWCC Watch & Clock Podcast Episode 5: The Chess Master & His Watch
In this podcast, we discuss the first U.S. chess master, Paul Morphy, and the pocket watch he received after his triumphant return to the U.S. after defeating Europe's greatest players. We interview chess historian Lucas Anderson about the fascinating life and chess of Morphy. We also chat with Roland Murphy, watchmaker and owner of RGM Watch Co., about the wristwatch he made that was inspired by the dial of Morphy's watch, which is now part of the collection at the National Watch & Clock Museum.
NAWCC Watch & Clock Podcast Episode 4: The Engle Clock
In this episode, we discuss the Engle Clock, its fascinating history, and Stephen Engle, the little-known genius who created it. We talk with Bill Zell, Museum docent and Engle Clock historian, and Tom Bartels, former Executive Director of the NAWCC, who was responsible for the clock's acquisition and restoration at the National Watch & Clock Museum.
This podcast is great for anyone interested in clocks, horology, time, or watches. I like the interview, and the fun, clock-ticking transitions. Members of the organization and others can find something valuable from the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors and this podcast.
