watch-museum.jpg The York Pennsylvania National Watch & Clock Museum is thinking big, readying an exhibit of presidential time pieces.

The topic has exploded in recent years, from interest in Bill Clinton’s clinton-watch-ironman-tight.gif Ironman, to George Bush’s watch theft bush-albania-watch.jpg[or not] bush-albania-2watch.jpg in Albania, to…well that about does it.

The Museum starts off with four items: a pocket-watch and clock from James Monroe, a Gerald Ford clock, and for the young people, Julie Nixon Eisenhower’s wristwatch.
