Horological Collection Karl Gebhardt

With ca. 1,000 objects on display out of a total of ca. 1,450, this collection ranks as one of the best of its kind in Europe.

It impressively documents the development of portable timepieces from Peter Henlein’s so-called “pocket watch”, which ran for 40 hours after winding, right down to the radio-controlled solar clock of today. It also showcases large and small mechanical and electronic timepieces, from 1890 to 2000, with and without striking mechanisms.
