The National Watch and Clock Museum and NAWCC 2011 Ward Francillon Time Symposium

In our last entry our guest blogger was Alan Garratt. An Englishman who has traveled from Britain to India to the United States for his career with the tire industry, Alan shared how the Mozart Watch Company was an important part of the early beginnings of the Dueber-Hampden Watch Works. Alan's own blog is interesting, and filled with Dueber-Hampden facts and visuals, it definitely is worth a visit. Thanks again Alan for guest blogging for my site.

Please join our Dueber-Hampden Watch Work Facebook
While I have been on a self-imposed hiatus from my blog, Greg Farino from Michigan is researching the Dueber family tree and we hope to get something put together on the family history. Currently, Greg is helping out with the Dueber Hampden FACEBOOK answering questions from fans and new collectors, and all the time adding new information about the Dueber Family and its history.

So if you have a question do feel free to drop over to our FACEBOOK page. Click the link on the top right-hand side of our blog to become a friend.
I know Greg will be happy to help answer your questions.
