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.

The Beyer Museum receives a watch from Svend Andersen

08/26/2013

Svend Andersen, a famous watchmaker from Geneva, has given the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum a wristwatch with the smallest calendar mechanism in the world as a gift. In 1989, Mr Andersen produced just 12 of these watches, most of which were sold to South America. An entry in the Guinness Book of Records confirms the uniqueness of this timepiece’s tiniest of calendar mechanisms.

The ties between Mr Andersen and the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum date back to the 1970s, when the watchmaker was in frequent contact with Theodor Beyer, who founded the Museum. As a token of thanks for Theodor Beyer’s help and support, as well as to honour the promise he made in 1990, Svend Andersen has now presented the Museum with the prototype of this watch. We are delighted with this wonderful gift and will ensure that it is accorded a fitting place in our exhibition.
