Serpa’s Watch Museum, in the Alentejo, celebrated a "birthday," this one to celebrate the display of its 600th pocket watch. According to Eugénio Tavares d’Almeida, museum manager and registrar, “the 600th pocket watch was donated by a lady from Elvas who felt the need to donate it when she last visited the museum. The watch once belonged to her grandfather, but sat unused and irreparable for years.” After two weeks of repair work by Mr. António Silva, the old Moeris was revived and working like the day it was made (ca. 1920). Many of the parts were restored and others made new from scratch, but the end result is one of the 2,100 reasons/watches to visit Serpa and this Museum, one of a kind in the Iberian Peninsula.
