Clocks are the oldest measuring time devices, without which we cannot imagine our existence. The history of clocks is the history of innovation and progress in science. Through the development of this customary “gadget”, we can trace the history of scientific discoveries and amazing inventions, which became possible thanks to the work of talented artisans and enthusiasts keen on watchmaking.

The museum Collection repository enumerates more than three hundred various clocks and watches (long case, wall, console, mantel, table, carriage clocks and pocket watches), which give an idea of how watchmaking art has developed over the centuries and how scientific thought has progressed.
