RGM is celebrating 25 years this year. To commemorate this milestone, the American maker is inviting the press and the public to their open house this fall, where attendees can see first-hand the process that goes into creating RGM’s impressive pieces. It’s not often that brands open their doors to the public this way, which is even more true for those of us in the United States, so this presents a unique opportunity for watch lovers.
From RGM’s press release:
“Many watch aficionados know how passionate Roland Murphy is about preserving alive the craft of guilloché. This event will allow participants to observe this machinery in motion as he demonstrates how RGM creates some of the beautiful engraved patterns characteristic of their watches. Witness
firsthand vintage machines working in harmony with modern technology to create unique timepieces. The open house will also provide the opportunity to observe the making and finishing of watch parts and assembly of movements.
The second phase of the event will take place at the National Watch and Clock Museum in Columbia, PA. RGM will unveil several new watch models and give away some RGM swag. Light refreshments will be provided. As a special bonus, attendees will be guided through the museum by Mr. Murphy himself.”
