Here you will find a great museum in the “small” Saarland. The Saarland Clock Museum is one of the few museums in Europe, which shows the development of timekeeping from the Antiquity to the Present: From the elementary watches over tower- and pageantry-watches to the pocket- and wrist-watches of the presence.

Agenda

On 2 Christmas Day, Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018 our museum must unfortunately remain closed!

The next event is the Stammtisch on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 from 18 AM. Guests are welcome!

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.

If you wish to be informed on the activities in the Saarland Clock Museum by e-mail, please sign up to our mailing list. The application form can be found on our events page.

We wish you all a peaceful Advent season.
