SWITZERLAND BY RAIL - REGIONS - ZURICH

TURLER COSMOS CLOCK

Turler Cosmos Clock on bahnhofstrasse ZurichAlong the famed shopping street of the Bahnhofstrasse of Zurich, nearly every corner is populated by a watch or jewelry store. And why not, Switzerland is a capital of the fine watch design world. But for a more complex timepiece, stop in to the Türler Company Store at the Padadeplatz. Türler (or Tuerler) is both an historic watch-maker and retail store, located in Zurich for 125 years, and on display is the Türler Clock in the center of the main showroom. Made of 1.2 tons of brilliant brass with 251 wheels and 155 pinions in its movement, the Türler Clock is one of the most complex time pieces ever created, designed to mark the time from its location in downtown Zurich, in relationship to the movement of the entire cosmos, marking the "platonic year". No admission charge is needed to see the Türler Clock, just go watch browsing
