Do not neglect a visit to the Clockworks <http://theclockworks.org/> museum. Examples of the most accurate pendulum clocks ever put into production e.g., (LeRoy, Riefler, Shortt-Synchronome and Fedchenko) are among the collection there. Free — and the staff are very friendly and extremely knowledgable.
