Lá dentro estão magníficos relógios de caixa alta, de parede, de mesa e até um relógio de sol do século XVI. De um lado está o balcão e o atendimento, do outro uma sala onde se mostram exemplares fantásticos dos séculos XVII, XVIII e XIX, já restaurados, com máquinas, caixas e acabamentos de um pormenor impressionante.
