The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors holds educational workshops for amateur and professional horologists.  Courses cover a number of topics that are guaranteed to interest anyone with a love of clocks and watches.

This September 19-24, the NAWCC will be holding a course on Watch Valuation in Columbia, PA taught by Joe Cohen FNAWCC. The course will cover identification of watch types, key watch characteristics and components, the role of construction and materials in the proper identification of watches; basic understanding of watch conservation, restoration, refinishing, and repairs; and subsequent impact on value.

Participants will learn watch examination techniques, what to photograph on a watch, and research tools and methods. They will also learn how to apply critical appraisal skills such as qualitative ranking, classification, rarity determination, and how to write accurate descriptions.
