My entire watch collection (almost) is on display at the Channel Heritage Centre, Margate, for the month of March. The exhibit consists of over 200 items including 180 watches ranging in age from 1750c to 2010.
On display is some of the world’s most desirable classic brand names; Patek Pillippe, Rolex, Omega, Longines, Baume and Mercier, Girard Perregaux, Cartier, Rado, IWC, Bulova, Certina, Zenith and more. Other, more commercial brands, include Tag Heuer. Seiko, Citizen, Edox, Enicar, Waltham and many others.
Some of the collection is organised into categories, such as; Railroad watches, braille watches, watches in space etc.
Also included is a superb Zenith marine chronometer, some watchmakers’ tools and some classic advertisements and posters.
The Channel Heritage Centre is well worth a visit anytime but all the more so this month, so, if you live in Southern Tasmania, go for a drive, check out the museum and drop me a line with a comment.
