The National Watch and Clock Museum celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2017. To commemorate this milestone, the Museum teamed up with American watchmaker Roland Murphy and RGM to auction off a special, one-of-a-kind watch with the proceeds going to support the Museum and its mission “to preserve the art, science, history, and technology of time and timekeeping.” Roland Murphy explains his support for the Museum and the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors (NAWCC):

“I have been a member of the NAWCC for a long time. This watch is a way I can say thanks to the organization that preserves so many wonderful things from horological history. My father died last year and he was also a longtime member. He also enjoyed the Museum and NAWCC events. So, from both of us, I am happy to support all things timekeeping.”

The watch in question—RGM Model 151-B—features a 38.5mm stainless steel case, a pilot-inspired blue dial, and comes equipped with a modified ETA 2892-A2 movement. This edition will feature the NAWCC logo on the dial and the Museum’s 40th anniversary logo on the exhibition case back.The watch is now live on eBay with a little less than ten days left in the auction.
