The Prof. Dimas de Melo Pimenta clock museum

In Brazil, the Prof. Dimas de Melo Pimenta Clock Museum has a collection with some 700 models, including pocket watches, wall clocks, table clocks, cuckoo clocks and the company's traditional product.

A collection which has been enriched over many decades of dedication and also a passion for telling the time.

The fascination for creation and innovation is one of the registered trademarks of the Melo Pimenta family. By creating this Museum in 1950, Dimas de Melo Pimenta fulfilled a long-time dream. From that moment forth, he embarked on an ever-deeper search for relics.

His son, Dimas II, continued his father's work, true to the family tradition, acquiring new exhibits. With this objective, he turned the collection into one of the most original and important in the country, renowned all over the world.

A popular destination for visits by students, tourists and the general public, the Clock Museum is an interesting and educational trip for anyone visiting São Paulo.
