You are cordially invited…Tour of the RGM Watch CO & the NAWCC Museum.
Since it’s founding in 1992, RGM has become a well-known brand among watch aficionados and collectors. As we are a small company who’s focus is on creating a limited number of bespoke, unique timepieces each year, RGM is not often able to grant the many requests we receive to tour our facility here in Lancaster, PA. In celebration of RGM’s 20th anniversary, we are providing a special opportunity for you to see American Watchmaking here at RGM.
On Saturday, September 1, 2012, we are opening our doors to invite you to a rare, behind-the-scenes tour of RGM. Many of you know how passionate Roland Murphy is about preserving alive the ancient craft of guillochè. This tour will allow you to observe this machinery in motion as he demonstrates how we create some of the beautiful engraved patterns found on our watches. You will also witness firsthand how we marry the old with the new by seeing vintage machines work in harmony with modern technology, such as our CNC milling machines, to create our unique timepieces. This tour will provide the opportunity to observe our watchmakers assemble movements, refinish watch parts and cases, and the making of watch parts. We will provide our guests time to examine our timepieces personally. Should you decide to take advantage of this occasion to acquire one of our watches for yourself, we will be offering a Special Show price for that day only.
The second phase of this event will take place at the National Watch and Clock Museum in Columbia, PA. As a special bonus, attendees will be guided through the museum by Mr. Murphy himself.
Because space is limited, we request you reserve your attendance as soon as possible by contacting Richard Baugh at firstname.lastname@example.org. A modest donation, which we will present to the NAWCC Museum, will confirm your reservation.
Saturday, September 1, 2012, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
RGM Watch Co., 801 W. Main St., Mount Joy, PA 17552
Attendees will be provided a two hour break for lunch, then reconvene at the NAWCC Museum.
