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.
