Happenings The Horological Society Of New York 2019 Gala & Charity Auction
In the spring of 1866, George Schmidt and Frederick Ruoff chose to frame an organization to assist New York City watchmakers. Month to month addresses were planned, a library was framed and the Horological Society of New York (HSNY) was conceived. Today, HSNY is one of the most seasoned constantly working watchmaking relationship on the planet. Consistently since 1866, HSNY hosts held a yearly gala supper get-together, and HSNY’s 2019 Gala & Charity Auction on Wednesday, April 17, is turning out to be an amazing occasion. Interestingly, HSNY’s greatest evening of the year will be held at the Manhattan Penthouse, an uncommon occasion setting bragging all encompassing views the New York City skyline.

At the Gala, the Henry B. Seared Scholarship beneficiaries will be declared. For 2019, HSNY will grant different grants of $10,000 each, intended to help understudies at full-time watchmaking schools in the United States. Also, the Howard Fass Award will be introduced. The Howard Fass grant is given to people decided to have shown exceptional commitment to the beliefs which HSNY seeks after. This honor is HSNY’s most noteworthy honor, and has just been given once previously. The Howard Fass grant will be introduced to a beneficiary who has committed their life and vocation to horological training, managing many watchmaking understudies through school and into their expert careers.
