Who am I?
I am a private clock collector who is interested in the history of clockmaking, the classification of clocks, best practices for building a collection, characterizing it, classifying it and maintaining it. I am not affiliated with any organization that funds me, I do not trade clocks, and I do not promote trade. The few references to for-profit sites such as sales sites of old clocks or timepieces are only there for informational purposes. This website was developed by me alone from the best references in the field. I fully cover the costs of development, management and hosting. The address of my website is: https://clockworks-horloges.com/
