An exhibition of old clocks was held in Petropavlovsk, Tengrinews.kz reports.

A museum collection of clocks of 19th and 20th century were exhibited prior to the 260th anniversary of Petropavlovsk city. All the clocks were kept in a museum and this was the first time when they were opened for public. Genri Mozer, Pavel Bure, Gustav Becker and other world famous German and Swiss watchmakers' clocks were presented in the exhibition. Wall, carriage and long-case clocks including pocket watches – a variety of forms and types - were exhibited in the hall.

“For example: Pavel Bure's clocks were presented to the Emperor's court. They are very expensive and it is obvious that they were designed for nobles. All the clocks have been restored and it was very difficult to find all the required details for the restoration. The clocks were like dead before the exhibition and now when we've opened them for public they have returned to life,” Tatyana Lanshikova, author of the exhibition and Museum's Historical and Exposition department head said.
