The Beyer Watch

The design of this watch emulates the giant timepiece that hangs outside the Beyer shop. It has served as a trademark for decades, and can be seen from a long way off on the Bahnhofstrasse.

Electronic Clock Collection

12/01/2016

Each month the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum will be exhibiting a different rarity from its collection of electronic clocks. In December, we are featuring the main clock System HIPP,  which was made around 1880 in Zurich. Beyer developed a number of its own electronic watches between 1964 and 1988. To this day, some of them can still be seen in public places, such as the clock at the Meeting Point at Zurich’s main train station and the Flower Clock at Bürkliplatz.
