New aquisition 2011-2013
The Beyer Clock and Watch Museum is among Zurich's top attractions and also one of the most important private collections in the world that is open to the public. Its first-class collection is continually being expanded – on the one hand by actively making purchases, and on the other, thanks to generous gifts and bequeaths. The famous watchmaker, Svend Andersen, for example, presented the museum with the world’s smallest wristwatch with a calendar mechanism, which features in the 1989 Guinness Book of Records.
Among the fascinating new timepieces is a pendulum clock with fabulous sculptures and the signature “Th. Beyer Zürich” inscribed on the clock face, and a magnificent fob watch in the form of a Montgolfière hot-air balloon. We cordially invite you to pay a visit to our Clock and Watch Museum and see these beautiful new items for yourself.
