List of articles published in Antiquarian Horology

We have been publishing high-quality scholarly articles about objects and ideas in the story of time since 1953. Our peer-reviewed quarterly journal, Antiquarian Horology, is internationally renowned for its scope and depth.

It can be found in numerous libraries, including the Society's own, which is freely accessible to the public through Guildhall Library in London.
