4 Meeting

CT Chapter 148 held its first meeting of 2024 on January 20th.  Despite the extremely cold weather, over 75 members and their guests came from CT, NJ, NY to view clock, watch and associated horological items for sale by fellow members while enjoying a selection of breakfast items, coffee, and juices.

We were pleased to have Robert Frishman, NAWCC Silver Star Fellow, join us and present a slide presentation of his and his wife’s trip to Japan in 2023 and their visit to three important horology sites in Tokyo.  They first visited the Daimyo Japanese Clock Museum where they learned the history of Japanese timekeeping.  They then preceded to visit the National Museum of Nature and Science, which has a dedicated gallery filled with Japanese timepieces, one slide showing Edo-period pillars (designed to hang vertical on posts) and lantern clocks (many displayed on straight legs, trapezoidal wooden pedestals or tables and bracket styles).  This followed by a visit to the Seiko Museum, a 5-story building housing more than ten thousand objects, providing a chronological history of timekeeping and focusing on the company’s history and products from 1881 to the present day.  The presentation ended with a slide of a prototype turret clock movement for Westminster's tower (1884) and some history behind it.   The presentation concluded with a short question and answer session.  

We also wish to thank Robert Frishman, Co-Chair, for promoting the upcoming April 26-27, 2024 New England Regional being held in Concord, NH.

We were pleased to see many of our members return, Steve Sadowski (NY), Jerry Maltz (NY), Mel Brown (CT), Joe Kaddis (CT), Rick Legnani (CT), Ron Gentile (CT), Brian Albert (NY), Gail Brochu (CT) and Carl Mirando (CT) and many more.  We welcome our new members from CT and NY and missed some who could not make it for various reasons.  We hope they will be joining us at our next meeting in March.

Again, special thanks to all our officers and volunteers, without them we would not be able to hold our meetings.  Special thanks to those members who lent a hand setting up before the meeting and cleaning up afterwards.
