Due to the rising numbers of people being affected by the new variants of Covid19, it would be prudent to ask all members and attendees at our future meetings at Exeter School to have a flow test before attending the meeting.
The wearing of masks during the meetings will be a personal decision. We all need to take care of ourselves and others.

SOUTH WEST BRANCH

BRITISH HOROLOGICAL INSTITUTE

Horology is the art and science of making, restoring, repairing and servicing mechanical and electronic timekeeping and measuring devices.

The British Horological Institute was founded in 1858 and is the national organisation which sets standards for training, and regulates the profession by grades of qualification.

The BHI also encourages a wider interest from the general public by associate membership.  The well-supported and active South West Branch of the BHI, was formed in 1990.

Meetings are usually on the first Wednesday of most months, 7:45pm – 10:00pm at Exeter School, Manston Terrace, EX2 4NP.  Anyone interested in clocks and watches is welcome to come along.  For details of our meetings and speakers, see our Events page.  For more information, or for queries not answered by this website, please contact our Secretary.

The South West Branch has also set up The Westcountry Horological Trust to offer assistance to deserving persons who wish to undertake horological training or improve their skills. Please click on the “Trust Fund” link on the left for further details.
