In this months Bulletin, be sure to read Rich's article on Robert Leslie of Philadelphia, maybe America's first true watch maker.

With the letters from Thomas Jefferson to the way the Philadelphia's Guild backballed him, to his London years it is a great research on a previously unknown watchmaker.

Richard gave a presentation on him at the National and had one of his watches and I really enjoyed learning of this man.

Jim, thanks for the kind words.

I'm also convinced that Leslie also made America's first chronometer. Hope you like the second part of the article that should be published in the next Bulletin.

Its amazing how much is unknown about these early American watchmakers. Even the last scholarly work on Goddard is decades old. Is there any interest collaborating on early makers (exhibit, articles, symposium)?
