Bob Frishman first began collecting, repairing and studying clocks and watches in 1980.  In 1992, he founded Bell-Time Clocks in Andover, Massachusetts, as a full-time repairer and dealer of antique clocks.  Since then, he has repaired 7,000 timekeepers and sold 1,700.   He has written more than 40 NAWCC Bulletin articles and reviews, as well as many horology-related reports for Maine Antique Digest and other antiques publications. 

Bob’s 27th “Horology in Art” feature has just been published in the NAWCC Bulletin.  Bob lectures regularly to horology and general audiences.  He is an NAWCC Fellow, chair of the NAWCC Ward Francillon Time Symposium Committee and organizer of this year’s “Clocks at Winterthur” NAWCC educational conference, and a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers in London, England.  More about him can be found at www.bell-time.com.

Clocks at Winterthur


A preview of the presentations and collections at the 2016 NAWCC Ward Francillon
Time Symposium at Winterthur near Wilmington, Delaware.

One of America’s top-rated house museums, Winterthur boasts a premier collection of 90,000 decorative and fine arts objects made or used in this country between 1640 and 1860.  Envisioned and created by Henry Francis du Pont (1880-1969), the 175-room house presides over a 1,000-acre estate in Delaware’s Brandywine Valley

H. F. du Pont had a special interest in clocks and timekeeping.  He acquired many fine examples for the museum during his lifetime.  Since his passing, more clocks have been added to the collection which now numbers more than 100.  Within the museum galleries is a faithful reconstruction of the clock and wood-working shop of the Dominy family who worked on Long Island from the mid-1700s to the mid-1800s.
