I'm heading to the York, PA mart. I'm meeting with fellow forum denizen Trim who is visiting the US from New Zealand.

We are also planning to go to the NAWCC museum, see the former Hamilton Factory, and visit Gettysburg. Tomas aka timeticker says he'll meet us at Gettysburg.

Anyone else?

The mart was a good one. Saw lots of Gruen stuff. Didn't buy any of it however. I saw three Aegler duo-dialed Gruen's. most at one show ever. I was more focused on tools and trench style watches.

There was a reception at the NAWCC museum after the mart closed too. Got to wander in the back with the museum director. Saw this display, which I thought nice.

At the museum is also a mock jeweler's store. They've a number of items and watches in the jeweler's cabinets that were donated by Robert Gruen. Only thing that I took umbrage with is the display stated that Gruen introduced the Auto-wind in 1950. That's wrong. Otherwise a great museum.
