On Wednesday, 16 January 2019 Dr. Dietmar Schuler holds in the series “Museum in the afternoon” a lecture on “The Morbier clock”. These fascinating watches from the Franche-Comte in the 19th century were an absolut hit in watch-sale. They meet at 16 o’clock comfortable with coffee and cake. The event is supported by the Volkshochschule Püttlingen.
After initial exhibition “Clockwork” the watch works by internationally renowned artist Martin Riches one of his works remained in the Saarland Clock Museum:
The watch is a fascinating work of art and is also a tribute to John Harrison, the first succeeded early 18th century to design watches, which made an accurate determination of longitude on sailing ships possible.

Since 16 November 2016 our special “iron clocks from the 16th to the 18th Century” is opened.
In our series “Visiting the Saarland Clock Museum” can currently a Black Forest Flötenuhr be visited from 1850, which will also be demonstrated on request.
We often get requests for watchmakers who can repair old and antique clocks. If you want to do something themselves, feel free to come to our regular tables that take place every first Wednesday of the month from 18 am in the normal case. On the other hand, you can also contact our club members, who can be found in this list.
