Hollywood Meets Horology With Help of Actor Aldis Hodge
Although the Horological Society of New York has been quietly thriving for the last 153 years, it doesn’t hurt to have some Hollywood starpower become its voice.
Since 1866, HSNY has been the go-to guild for watchmakers, beginning in New York City and now with an international membership and presence. As HSNY expands, it’s important to let all horology enthusiasts know the many avenues in which they can take advantage of our resources, from monthly lecture series, multiple weekday classes and a rapidly-growing international traveling education program.
The horological community has proven to have strength in numbers, and when passionate individuals come together that’s when HSNY is able to advance the art and science of horology. Aldis Hodge, an actor and horological engineer (not to mention collector), joined HSNY back in 2016 and has been a friend and member since.
“I believe the continued education and exploration of horology/horological art is a necessary asset to appreciating our time for what it truly is: one of the greatest sources of wealth we all share on this earth,” said Hodge. “Understanding the value of how we choose to show and tell time reinforces our appreciation of how we get to spend that time - be it with loved ones, pursuing our greatest passions, exploring new experiences, etc.”
When Hodge isn’t busy filming award-nominated movies and television shows, horology comes to the forefront and becomes the star. HSNY is grateful for Hodge who devoted his time and talent to immortalize HSNY on the screen.
