500 YEARS OF THE WATCH
The second lecture in a series organised by Palazzo Falson in conjunction with Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti was held on the 11th November 2009. David Thompson, who delivered the lecture titled '500 years of the watch' to a packed audience, is curator of Horology at the British Museum. He was in Malta on the invitation of Palazzo Falson to examine its watch collection, which includes the absolutely rare Robert Robin decimal time watch. The results of his study will be published in a forthcoming book which will feature a study on each of the principal collections of Palazzo Falson.
