March Meet wrist watch case and dial design. Our first meet of the year finally went ahead. We had it outside as the room normally used was still flood damaged. There was a pleasing turnout to support our guest speaker Tony who brought along some exciting watches used to demonstrate case and dial design. Members were asked to contribute by bringing a watch that they liked and this was also well supported. The meeting elected the Committee for 2002 and our President Allan provided a summary of last years activities.

April Meet - clock and watch promotional accessories. This topic generated much interest. An introduction from Colin outlined the importance of mainly watches to the advertising industry. A standout contribution was a raised shark invitation to Breitling's conference in Basel 2008. Other displays covered Hardy Bros, Wallace Bishop, Rolex, Omega, Roskopf and a large collection of Seiko promotions.

May Meet - slate case restoration. 25 members braved this wet & cold day to attend. We are still meeting in the open though protected by a roof. The workshop set out to present affordable, straightforward and successful ways to restore a slate clock - how to clean, fix cracks and chips with Milliput and to repaint the gold in the scroll work. The next Mainspring will cover these aspects in detail.
