This newsgroup was started by Ian Crocker in the United Kingdom during November 1994, as a response to the absence of any newsgroup covering this subject at the time. Early objections to this newsgroup noted that the rec.antiques or sci.physics discussion could support horology discussions, but the creation of alt.horology prevailed. The original intent was only to support the discussion of clocks, watches and time measuring devices.
Since 1994 the newsgroup has experienced increased activity each year, and now serves as the only active newsgroup and reliable Usenet source of information on horology, watches, and clocks.

Famous quotes containing the word origin:
“All good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity.”
—William Wordsworth (17701850)
“The origin of storms is not in clouds,
our lightning strikes when the earth rises,
spillways free authentic power:
dead John Browns body walking from a tunnel
to break the armored and concluded mind.”
—Muriel Rukeyser (19131980)
“Someone had literally run to earth
In an old cellar hole in a byroad
The origin of all the family there.
Thence they were sprung, so numerous a tribe
That now not all the houses left in town
Made shift to shelter them without the help
Of here and there a tent in grove and orchard.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
