Late 1656 the physicist Christiaan
Huygens invented the pendulum clock, which is still
considered as very important. As to implement his invention,
Huygens sought collaboration with master clockmaker Salomon
Coster in the Hague. From that moment on Coster became the
most influential clockmaker in the Netherlands.
Because relatively little was known about Salomon Coster,
Rob together with Victor Kersing started an archive research
on Salomon Coster. Their goal is to map the story of Coster
and his family.
