This year's most intriguing Reunion theme is a continuous, measurable quantity of the physical universe in which events at a given place occur in a sequence proceeding from the past through the present to the future. "Time" is this omnipresent dimension on which we will reflect during an exclusive private guided tour of the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum. The museum is home to one of the most important horological collections in the world. The exhibition comprises some 300 pieces from all fields of chronology, which are examined in technical and scientific terms as well as from an art history point of view. It recounts the complete history of timekeeping from 1400 BC to the present day.

At our General Meeting at the famed Carlton, we will look back on our very successful 18th year of operation and will look forward to new projects pursued by and for the membership.
