Watchmaker Steffen Cornehl restores watches and clocks in the Tsar's summer palace

Since 2001, members of the "Fachkreis für historische Uhren – Schloss Raesfeld e.V.“ which is an association of experts for antique clocks and watches go to Peterhof Museum in St. Petersburg to restores clocks and watches in the museum every year. Steffen Cornehl is engaged in this project since 2002. The association has its own studio on the premises of the museum. There the restoration for the castles and palaces is carried out. But before the museum's administration creates a list of watches and clocks that are supposed to be newly exhibited and of those timepieces in the showrooms that need to be revised.

Dear Mr. Cornehl,

The national museum "Peterhof" expresses with this letter its gratitude for the implementation of unique restoration work on the movements of the Palace. 
In recent years the clocks were not functioning, the exhibitions of the museum impoverished, the halls were robbed their rhythmic striking of the clocks and therefore seemed dead.

The adminsitrations hopes for further friendly relations and cooperation and we are always glad to welcome you in our museums.
