National Benevolent Society of Watch & Clock Makers

Helping Those Who Served The Trade

Since 1815 the NatBen has provided financial help to members of the UK Watch and Clock trade, their widows/widowers & dependents.   Help is usually offered in the form of quarterly grants and occasional gifts, set by a dedicated committee of trustees who meet regularly to review any applications received.

Many thousands of trade members have been served by the Society over the years and even now, hundreds are being regularly helped. The numerous letters of appreciation received give testimony to the high regard in which Grantees hold both the assistance and the manner and spirit in which it is distributed.
