The Antiquarian Horological Society, abbreviated to AHS, is the UK-based learned society for scholars and enthusiasts of horology. Its administrative office is at Ticehurst, East Sussex. Between May 2014 and October 2015, its president was Professor Lisa Jardine. Following her untimely death, the Society is yet to appoint a new president.
The Society was founded in 1953. It unites collectors, scholars and museum professionals interested in the historical aspects of horology – the study of the art, science, social history and technology of timekeepers, such as clocks and watches. Source
