British Horological Institute – South London Branch

Open Day – Saturday 14th April 2018

The South London Branch of the British Horological Institute held an open day on Saturday 14th April 2018. We welcomed over 300 visitors.

Branch Vice President Ron Rose said “the purpose of the day was to promote awareness of horology and the activities of the British Horological Institute in today’s world and show that there are still opportunities to develop a rewarding career in horology.”
