Summer Internship: Time Flies!

Posted on June 19th, 2015 by

My name is Carmen, and I’m interning at the Jewish Museum of Maryland for the summer! I’m already two weeks into my internship, and boy does time fly! So, sticking with the theme of “time,” I want to show you some of my favorite clocks and pocket watches from our collection.

I’ve always had an interest in watches and clocks. I’m especially fond of ornate or antique clocks! Shiny ones are my favorite.

Clocks are interesting to me because they’re not just used for telling time. They can be an artistic expression; they can be beautiful, as well as useful. Manufacturers often go out of their way to create pieces of art that are functional and useful in everyday life.

As well as beautiful, clocks are also universal. Though many of the clocks in our collection are old or antique, they aren’t obsolete. Clocks never really go out of style; they will always be of use to us. You could say that clocks are truly “timeless”!
