BWCMG welcomes world renowned musician with a lifelong love of clocks

Rhythm and blues legend Jools Holland OBE, who has a lifelong love of clocks and watches, has agreed to become the BWCMG’s new president.

The pianist, band leader, singer, composer and tv and radio presenter, who has been an avid clock collector for many years, says he is honoured to accept the invitation.

The Guild’s former President, The Most Hon, The Marquess of Northampton DL, who has been in post for many years,  following on from his father, felt the time was right to step down as he is now 72.

Jools said: ‘It is a great privilege to be asked to become President. I have always loved clocks, watches and mechanical things made by the human hand and have particular admiration for the skills and craft of members.’
