"Unwinding the History of a Timeless Accessory: The Art of the Watch Key" will explore the Smith Watch Key Collection at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum. This unique collection of over 1,200 watch keys illustrates a range of designs and fine craftsmanship from the development of the pocket watch in the 16th century through the invention of the stem-winder in the mid-19th century. In addition to the practical nature of the keys to wind watches, they also served as accessories signifying the status, culture, and style of their owners.
