Happenings Our Own Cole Pennington To Lecture At The Horological Society Of New York
Most of the time we don’t think about it, yet a solitary line of text on the caseback of a watch can inform us so much concerning where it’s been and what it might have seen. It can add setting to the imprints for the situation and the patina on the dial. Watches have stories to tell, and a little piece of data can disentangle captivating records about the watches and the people who wore them.
Last July, Cole Pennington published an article here that chronicled his story of purchasing a couple of watches at a reasonable and utilizing the caseback inscriptions to get them back to where they should have been – the closest relative of the first proprietor. One watch was engaged with the troubling and desperate business that was the Battle of the Atlantic. Because of Cole’s endeavors, the watch found a home in a gallery in Canada. Various different watches prompted impasses, and no additional data could be found – until Cole got a mysterious email that incorporated a couple of key pieces of missing data that resuscitated the inquiry. He will recount the remainder of the story at the Horological Society of New York (HSNY) address on February third, 2020 , where he will present point by point symbolism and chronicled reports that rejuvenate the stories of those watches.
