Herzliya 'Clocks' with Susanna Kaufman

Herzliya 'Clocks' with Susanna Kaufman

Wednesday 29 May ‎| ‎19:30 refreshments | 20:00 lecture‎

ESRA Herzliya

presents at talk on

‎`Clocks` ‎

by Susanna Kaufman, the woman with Time on her Hands

 

Timing is everything, they say, and that literally holds true for Susanna Kaufmann, one of the few remaining master ‎watchmakers in the country.‎


Danish-born Susanna studied to be a dental technician in her native Denmark. Impressed by her technical sense and ‎dexterity, one of her teachers encouraged her to follow a new career path, one where fine motor coordination, ‎mathematics, and patience are the tools of the trade.


Susanna opened up her own shop in Copenhagen at the age of 22 and in 1991, just six weeks after fulfilling her dream of ‎making Aliyah, she opened her own shop on Ibn Gvirol Street in Tel Aviv, and thanks to some complimentary newspaper ‎articles and word of mouth recommendations, she was in business and never looked back. ‎


Susanna acknowledges that watchmaking is a dying trade. It is clear, however, that most people hate to part with family ‎heirlooms, especially clocks. “They are beautiful and expensive and usually the craftsmanship is of high quality, which ‎you do not come across today, and they have irreplaceable sentimental value.”‎


Susanna’s shop and upstairs workroom are now located in Lev HaPark in Raanana. Her clients come to her from Metulla ‎to Eilat, either to purchase antique grandfather clocks or for repairs. ‎

Refreshments will be served.
