We have teamed up with our friends at the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors (NAWCC) to bring you their latest podcast that features more fascination horological stories.
NAWCC Watch & Clock Podcast Episode 5: The Chess Master & His Watch
In this podcast, we discuss the first U.S. chess master, Paul Morphy, and the pocket watch he received after his triumphant return to the U.S. after defeating Europe’s greatest players. We interview chess historian Lucas Anderson about the fascinating life and chess of Morphy. We also chat with Roland Murphy, watchmaker and owner of RGM Watch Co., about the wristwatch he made that was inspired by the dial of Morphy’s watch, which is now part of the collection at the National Watch & Clock Museum.
