President's Message

27 Sep 2017 11:52 AM | Justin Shiver (Administrator)

The AWCI convention has been moved due to damage from Hurricane Irma. The Chronometer Club Educational Seminar and Annual Business Meeting will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center located at 513 S Florida Ave. Tampa, FL 33602.

Space is still available for the Educational Seminar presented by Mr. Ernest Tope, CMW21. The seminar will be a two part program with the first part focusing on Chronometer Watches, and the second part focusing on the use of Cad-Cam & CNC for Watch Repair. I had the opportunity to review some of the topics Mr. Tope will be covering this morning, and I can’t wait to see the entire program. If you would like to register, please go to, sign in, and click on the EVENTS tab.

Valet parking is available at the Embassy Suites for $22/day. Self-parking is also available at the Convention Center Garage and South Regional Garage at $1.60/hour, maximum of $9.50/day.

During the business meeting elections will be held for Officers. If you or someone you know is interested in joining The Chronometer Club leadership, please contact myself or other Officers with the nominations. You do not have to be present to be nominated or elected.

My third term as President is coming to an end, and I am not eligible for another term. During my time as President, I have had the opportunity to work alongside some wonderful people. I would like to express my gratitude to all those that have contributed to the success of The Chronometer Club. It has been an honor to serve this group.

I hope to see you at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Downtown Convention Center next week.

Justin Shiver, CW21, MBHI
