Expand project to cover all horology?Edit

Since this Project is just getting started, I wanted to sound people out on the possibility of expanding it to cover all of horology; that is both watches and clocks. The technical aspects of watches and clocks (watchmaking and clockmaking) overlap a good deal. I am interested in the technical side and history of both watches and clocks, and I know a number of other wikipeople that are too. I'd like to participate in a Project that covers the whole field, but just watches is too specialized for me. --Chetvorno 16:55, 14 October 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1908 Elgin Pocket WatchEdit

I'm looking for Info about an Elgin National Watch Co. Pocket Watch, Serial#: 13796821 Case#: 104954, 17 Jewels 14 Karat.

If anyone can provide or direct me to info regrading this Pocket Watch, since I haven't found anything other than the year via the Serial#

Coin watchesEdit

I just started Coin watch. It could do with expansion, and an image (I can't find any on Commons). Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:11, 19 March 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

tactile watch "The Bradley"Edit


Just came across this tweet and thought I'd highlight it here.

On the Watch article.

Not sure that it's undue weight, but seems pretty promotional to me. Other thoughts?

Diffusal of Category:Watch brandsEdit

Is anyone willing to create categories to assist in diffusal of this category? The category seems to have gotten too large for a category that appears to be too generic, where there already exist other subcategories to serve this purpose. Jalen Folf (talk) 19:37, 30 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
