Australia’s next Census will be held during August, 2016.

  2. Good to know. Just wondering if city like Sydney have a group of enthusiasts that regularly get together to talk about their interest in watches. Hodinkee has recently start a series of meetings and talks with independent watch makers in NYC as well as hosting the premier of the documentary about George Daniel and RW Smith. Would be a good thing to start/join and get to know the local collectors as well.

    • @Vincent – there are many collectors in Australia and groups of various types/ interests/ sizes as well as more informal GTGs, including in Sydney. The earliest Sydney watch group started over a decade ago (Sydney Paneristi) but there have been a couple of groups that have formed since then. I most recently attended a GTG last weekend. Unfortunately, Australia doesn’t regularly play host to visiting independent watchmakers but I have hosted/ co-hosted a few events in the past for visiting Indies. Email me at thehorologium@gmail.com and I can tell you a bit more.
