When Osvaldo Patrizzi, the president of Antiquorum, first entered the Horology House of the Palace Museum in Beijing, he commented with much emotion: “Who can imagine talking the best clocks and watches in the world without mentioning the famous horology collection in Beijing’s Forbidden City?” Yes, since an Italian missionary from Roman Catholic Church presented two chime clocks to Emperor Wanli of the Ming Dynasty in 1601, Western clocks with advanced technology and pioneer art had won popularity among China’s royal families and nobles, and gradually spread to common people. This book melts the horology art in China into the history of communication between China and foreign countries.
