Watching the Ball Rise (Royal Observatory)


Owing to the coronavirus situation, event details may change at short notice. Please contact event organisers directly if you have any questions.  

The AHS has a busy programme of meetings held across the UK, overseas and online.

The London Lecture Series is the flagship for the society.

Our Annual Meeting is the highlight of the programme each year.

Specialist AHS groups cater for those interested in wristwatches, electrical horology and turret clocks.

Regional meetings, which are held around the UK, in Europe and in North America, usually take the form of lectures, tours or visits to museums and collections.

Our study tours let AHS members and their families and friends see horological collections around Europe.
