The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 204: Talking with Nicholas Manousos about the Horological Society of New York, Chronometer Certification, and American Watchmaking

This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, Blake Buettner, Zach Weiss, and Zach Kazan are happy to be joined by Nicholas Manousos, Executive Director of the Horological Society of New York. The HSNY is one of the world’s oldest continuously operating horological associations in the world, and Nicholas speaks with us about the organization’s history, mission, and some new initiatives that they’ve recently launched. One of those projects that Worn & Wound readers might be particularly interested in is HSNY’s new chronometer certification process, which debuted in a recent collaboration between Habring and Massena LAB (and immediately sold out). We get the full backstory on how HSNY goes about certifying a chronometer, why it’s important, and what to expect from the program going forward. Anyone interested in the history (and future) of horology in the United States is really going to enjoy this conversation.
