How to get on the musea list?

Get yourself on our musea list. All you need to do is enter the information about one or more clocks you own or have owned, are exhibiting or have exhibited by following the steps below.

Steps to get on this list

  • Make sure that you have joined as a Member of The Clock Register to obtain a login name and password.
  • Login to The Clock Register.
  • Once you are logged in, choose "add clocks" from the top menu. Then select basicdefinition: basic questions => Basic questions are questions that can be answered without taking the clock apart. or advanceddefinition: advanced questions => Advanced questions include the basic questions as well as questions that you typically can answer only if you take the clock apart. to add clock information about a clock you wish to register. Answer as many of the questions about your clock, as you can. The more you describe your clock, the more Clock Credits you will earn.
  • Once you reach the question "Do you know who currently owns this clock, or who has owned it in the past? " say "yes" and fill in your details as owner, former owner, museum exhibitor or former exhibitor.
  • Instead of following the bullet points above, you can also add clocks and ownerships of clocks by clicking on the orange "add a clock" button on the home page. You then fill in as many of the fields that you know a value for. And when done, you can add one or more owners or conservators or both.

NB: You can use The Clock Register for free, as long as you add clocks. You will get 100 free Clock Credits when you join us. You use up 20 Clock Credits when you click on the hyperlinks in the search results to see more details. But only for a clock contributed by someone else. So if you look at the details of a clock you have entered yourself that is always free. Every time you register a clock (to get your name on the musea list, to advertise a clock for sale or otherwise) you will gain Clock Credits depending on how many of the more than 150 fields you fill in. The more detail you provide, the more Clock Credits you gain.
