  • Biography
  • Mostyn Gale earned his B.S.E.E. degree from University of California Santa Barbara. He practiced his engineering at Raytheon in Santa Barbara, developing infrared focal planes, but quickly learned that his best skills were in people and project management and spent the bulk of his career managing engineers. Gale retired from Raytheon in 2012 to spend his time in his horological pursuits. He has been the Courthouse Clock Master for the Santa Barbara County since 2006 and completed a full restoration of the 1929 Seth Thomas tower (turret) clock in 2012. He is a member of Chapter 190 of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors and of other horological organizations, including the British Horological Institute, Antiquarian Horological Society, and American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute. He earned a Certificate in Appraisal Studies from University of California Irvine in 2011.
