The L.A. Mayer Museum of Islamic Art is one of the leading collections of Islamic art and antique watches and clocks. It was founded by the late Mrs. Vera Bryce Salomons who viewed the giving of expression to Israel's Muslim neighbors as something of great importance. The Museum is a tangible attempt to bridge the gap between cultures and has been since it’s opening in 1974.

The watches and clock collection is made up of over 180 watches and clocks that belonged to Sir David Salomon. Ground-breaking Breguet clocks are among those displayed in this magnificent collection.

The permanent collections at the museum represent the various periods of Islamic rule between the seventh and nineteenth centuries with different styles from different dynasties on display.
