A message from the President of Chapter 190...
Our Chapter is on the Beautiful Central California Coast, the region is south Santa Barbara County and Ventura County.
Some of us collect watches, others clocks and some collect both. We have all levels of knowledge from the beginning collectors and restorers to the professionals who work at full time businesses.
Our purpose is to have some fun, learn, share our knowledge, help each other and encourage others to become Watch and Clock collectors. We do this through our Chapter meetings, educational workshops, community outreach, and through this Website.
At the Chapter meetings we have a mart to sell or trade clocks, watches, parts, tools and educational materials. We have a show and tell where we share interesting watches and clocks. We have programs and workshops and we help each other with questions or give guidance with clock or watch repair questions.
A goal of the Ventura and Santa Barbara County Chapter is to provide a benefit to the community by preserving local historical time pieces and exhibit interesting timepieces in public places.
Our meetings are the 3rd Sunday of each month at Ventura College. We encourage visitors with the hope that you will join in the experience.
