Based on railway engineer Hans Hilfiker's 1940s classic, the Swiss Railway Station Clock is a standard throughout European train stations, with over 3,000 clocks keeping precision time. The straightforward black and white face with a red second hand is easy to read from a distance. The Large Swiss Railway Clock reflects the Museum's long history of documenting and displaying timepieces from the modern era, many examples of which are featured in the Museum's collection. Made by Mondaine with a brushed steel case, the clock was included in the Museum's Tempo exhibition. Two AA batteries required (not included); can also be run using the included AC adapter.
