Since the 1950s it has housed the jewelry from which the palace takes its name, but it is also known as the Rolex building for the advertising of such a brand placed on its facade. Too bad that of all this at the moment nothing is visible (see attached photo), because the whole building has been covered with a canvas, to hide the underlying scaffolding (probably there is a renovation in progress). There is a museum of antique clocks in the basement, but I do not know how to access it.
This very prominent building that houses the Grassy shop and clock museum is completely covered in scaffolding at the moment. more »
