The Innovation & Collaboration exhibition is considered to be best collection of clocks for several decades, with many historical clocks seen together for the first time. The exhibition has attracted visitors from throughout the world who describe this as ‘the greatest show on earth’ from a clock perspective.

Examples of reviews can be seen here.
A flavour of the exhibition can be seen here (although film alone cannot express the beauty of the timepieces).

Two private collectors have got together to make their magnificent collection of clocks open to the public for the very first time at a unique exhibition, hosted by the auction house, Bonhams, New Bond Street, London W1S 1SR.

James Stratton, Head of Clocks at Bonhams said, “These collectors have cherry picked their own collections and brought in a dozen loans from such renowned institutions as The Science Museum, The Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, Belmont House and the Zuylenburgh Planetarium in the Netherlands, in order to tell the most complete story of early timekeeping ever made public.

“The story is covered by national and regional museums throughout the world but not in such concentrated depth as you find in these four walls.

“As an example, only five clocks by Samuel Knibb survive in the world, and they’re all here. The earliest Pendulum Clock with a fusee is also included. The most accurate clock in the world from 1720 to about 1870, made by John Harrison, is at Bonhams. So, this exhibition offers the opportunity to see some highly important clocks all together for perhaps the one and only time.

“The exhibition has been visited by clock collectors from around the world, from Australia, the US, Canada, the Netherlands and the rest of Europe in particular. All around the world, people are talking about the exhibition. The collectors – Dr John C Taylor OBE and another anonymous private collector – have caused great excitement in our vibrant and passionate community and can be seen as heroes of horology.”
