World’s Largest Clock Collection: Guinness for Chennai’s Robert
Chennai’s Robert Kennedy can be called the clock man of the world. He has the world’s largest collection of clocks – 1706 of them according to the Guinness World Records. The confirmation came a few days ago after verifying the details he submitted in September 2017.
The 58 year old collector who has turned his 700 sq ft apartment at Kodambakkam into a clock museum told tellmystory.in “I never dreamt about this. I am so happy. Submitting the evidence was a rigorous process. It was worth it”.
Robert’s oldest clock is a 290 years old handmade clock from England which he says “no clock collector in the world has”. He also has the smallest pendulum clock made in 1860, believed to be Swiss made. “These two are my trump cards” he says adding “these don’t have any name as branding began only around 200 years ago”.
