About Antique Clock Emporium

“After being an avid clock collector for over 40 years, my new passion goes beyond selling the clocks and seeing them go to good homes. Having more room to showcase the next timepiece that just arrived. That, is my new love” Larry Adami, owner of the Antique Clock Emporium explains, “It can take me years of searching for the right style and condition to get one clock in. Not to mention the wait for shipping and customs, then the work begins to get them cleaned, functional (sometimes restored) and shop worthy. I am proud of them all.”

With over 500 clocks at any given moment – That is well over 3 million dollars in inventory of museum quality clocks.

Antique clocks deserve to be preserved and admired. It is permanence beyond the digital age and its fast-paced turnover with the current throwaway (cellphones and virtual assistants) that have replaced this antiquated time-keeping art. And Larry is dedicated to it.

They are a legacy to hand down and a treasure to be gifted. These clocks do more than keep time; they spend time with you and become part of your family. Unlike wall-art, they have a heart-beat all their own and set the tone of the room with more than just their looks. That tick-tock that has persisted unchanged is priceless. Will we feel the same about Siris’ voice in 100 years? Sorry Siri­.

"Well Over 3 Million Dollar Inventory of Museum Quality Antique Clocks in Burns Court – Sarasota, Florida."

Love for horology satisfies a wide range of tastes with themes including nature, music, history and astrology. Some have intricate calendars and temperature readings. There are so many varieties and sizes of clocks to choose from. Their movements are from captivating to subtle but each with an elegance that demands a closer look.

The Antique Clock Emporium is a quick walk through history with owner Larry Adami as your guide. He knows what makes each clock special, and the interesting details like the age, worldly region and maker. Hand-made gears, ball bearings and pulls make the inner workings just as beautiful as the decorated clock cases adorned in gold, bronze and marble. But the appreciation for these rare beauties goes beyond the craftsmanship and imagined technological hardships of their era. Their mere survival stories are awe-inspiring.

When you stop by the Antique Clock Emporium you walk through time.

Recently had the most unique experience of my life. I walked into the Clock Emporium and quickly was struck with the emotion that clocks symbolize that nothing in life remains permanent! The elegant movements and angelic chimes will surely mesmerize your emotions. The owner knew something on each clock he had in his inventory. I think he swallowed a page in history just to share each unique detail. Like visiting a museum!! If ever in Sarasota please take time out and visit this unusual emporium.

Called the owner, Larry, yesterday to ask about getting my 1880’s clock looked to see what it was worth and if it was in working condition. We stopped in today and he stopped what he was doing and checked out my clock and determined it’s in working order and showed me how to correctly connect the pendulum, adjust and wind the clock. He didn’t charge me a dime. I told him I’d leave him a great review and I have no qualms about doing so!

I was just in this amazing shop. It’s like a museum. All the things in there are absolutely beautiful works of art. I saw this new “god of wine” bacchus from Greek mythology and it was absolutely astonishing one of the most intriguing clocks I’ve ever seen. Great place with great customer service. I recommend going here and getting a clock or should I say a piece of art that tells time, you won’t regret it.

Stopped into the Antique Clock Emporium today and was simply blown away!! It is such a beautiful shop with the most incredible clocks I’ve ever seen. My boyfriend and I spent time looking at all the different types of clocks and the store owner, Larry, told us about all the rich history behind many of them. He was so informative and friendly— it was really fun to just take it all in. What an awesome hidden gem in Sarasota! I also asked about clock repairs for a broken grandfather clock at home and was happy to learn they do that as well! Looking forward to coming back soon.

Hands down, the Antique Clock Emporium is the best place when looking for antique clocks. If I could only give more reviewing stars, I would!! I highly recommend stopping by and ordering from Larry. His collection is spectacular. I found the one clock I was looking for with religious imagery from 1800s French Guilt Bronze. Larry was so kind and patient with me as I was expressing interest for 7 months. I flew all the way to Florida from California to visit him and to see the clock. It was exactly like he had mentioned it when in correspondence, but even more beautiful in person! I was worried that it might not work, but it was in pristine and working condition, just like he said! Even after purchasing, Larry responds immediately with any questions. My clock is working so well and I enjoy it everyday in my living room with the chimes. I am so thankful for meeting with Larry and stumbling upon his amazing emporium. I would highly recommend to everyone to visit!! He has an immensely incredible collection of antique clocks for sale to cater to the most fastidious and knowledgeable clock connoisseur.
