One more shout out to the Unemployed Philosophers Guild for their love of all things nerdy. In addition to the notebooks and Star Trek items I already posted, they have a selection of little things to fill your nerd cravings. The soaps might be in the running for my all time favorite puns. You can find all these items and more in the SCIENCE section of their website. (I posted the star stuff bar back in our first year, so clearly we were on top of things even back then.
The Ashmolean’s timepiece collection includes many important examples of pocket watches, coach watches and travelling clocks from the middle of the 16th century to the mid-19th century.
This stunning silver cased coach-watch, 12cm tall and made by Andreas Grundler in Friedberg, Germany, around 1730, is on display in our Silver Gallery. Thanks to Kotomi Yamamura for sharing this lovely photo on Instagram!
