Some of Horology's E-mailing Lists Sign-up Information.

    One of the largest list for people who are in the clock trade is the E-mailing list called Clocksmiths.
The requirements for membership are that you MUST be directly involved or were directly involved in the clock
trade either through consultation, education, repairs, sales, or as a supplier.

We are trying to limit membership to those that, at least somewhat, depend on repairs and/or sales as some source of income and if not then we'd like those that can bring significant expertise in one or more specific areas of horology. Those who made their living from horology and are now retired are welcome as well. We are not looking to be a teaching group per say, so beginners looking for instruction are asked not to apply.
Clocksmiths has about 400 members and devotes the collective energies of its' membership on better and smarter clock and watch repairs and restorations.
Once you subscribe, you will receive 12 questions and the charter. It is that questionnaire that will determine whether or not you'll be accepted.
This group has been on the Web continuously on various platforms since December 9, 1995, started by Mike Murray.

Another list for people who are interested in clocks is the E-mailing list called Clockgroup.

Another group for watchmakers, there is the following group.

An alternative for NAWCC members only is NAWCC's E-mailing list. The Members Forum was established to discuss NAWCC business, not horology in general or technical issues. You may sign up by giving the following information: Your name, your membership #, and your E-mail address and sent it to:
A different E-mail address for the actual discussions list will be given at the time of your approval.
NAWCC also has a message board and is open to everyone.

Two very specific horological groups by Sylvester A Crowley are:
American Watches
Gustav Becker Clocks

Horology for Mini Lathes is a group to share information on clock making ideas for the metalworking lathe owner.

Clockmakers For constructors of high quality horological items

For electric clock enthusiasts, there is group located at:

I have a group devoted to the professional service of the Atmos clock but you MUST meet the following requirements in order to join.
You are currently proficient at the overhaul of the Atmos clock and I'll need to know how many Atmos' you have worked on, your business name, how did you learn to work on the Atmos, and how long have you been in the business of repairing clock and/or watches. Clock and watch suppliers are always welcome, as are hobbyists. Hobbyists must demonstrate their Atmos repair proficiency.

Simply paste or type your E-mail address in the box below and you will automatically receive a file asking you for your professional qualifications.

Alt.horology is the USENET newsgroup covering clocks and watches. This is a good place for the "casual" collector or hobbyist to "hang out" because of its relative light traffic. There is about ten (10) times more activity on the listserver than the newsgroup.
I don't have the ability to explain how a newsgroup works but you can choose your favorite search engine and ask their computer via a search.
Happy hunting.
