One of the largest collections of clocks and watches in the world is located some 2 hours away from Manhattan — in the historic district of Bristol, CT. The museum is housed in an 1801 Federal-style home and boasts some 5,000 clocks and watches from all times including punch clocks, grandfather clocks, blinking-eye clocks, railroad watches, and character watches. I stopped by to peruse the collection and capture the highlights.

I've been exploring cities and neighborhoods for as long as I remember myself, documenting my observations and discoveries with photographs and in my journals. This mindful wondering has inspired and greatly fueled my design and research work, parts of which I'm sharing in this journal. Drop me a line at editor@arthurious.com
