Erol Ata’s Clock Room

Erol Ata, Ersa’s Chairman of the Board, has a collection of more than 2100 antique and rare time-pieces. The number of items and variety in the collection, consisting of all types of clocks, appears to have increased substantially during the last decade. Ata, who initially tried to acquire any object reminiscent of a clock regardless of their operational status, later acted more selectively and focused on timepieces with special meaning besides their historical value.

Erol Ata, Ersa’s Chairman of the Board, has a collection of more than 2100 antique and rare time-pieces. The number of items and variety in the collection, consisting of all types of clocks, appears to have increased substantially during the last decade. Ata, who initially tried to acquire any object reminiscent of a clock regardless of their operational status, later acted more selectively and focused on timepieces with special meaning besides their historical value. Timepieces originally gathered in a glass three-shelf cabinet are now being exhibited in a special ''Clock Room'' at his office, as well as in corridors and different business units at Ersa's Ankara complex. Erol Ata’s relationship with timepieces is not limited to purchasing only. Ata enjoys winding the wall timepieces, making adjustments and working in the ''clock room'' to the tick-tock sounds and music. In particular, Ata prefers secondhand clocks for his collection because clocks have a spiritual value to the degree they have witnessed history and they shed light on the past.

Ata can guess at first sight if a clock is windable, automatic, battery operated or powered by another method and has in his phone the names of more than 60 people engaged in timepiece trade. Erol Ata, who has the spirit of a genuine collector, has also become interested during the past 5-6 years in tubed-lamp radios, gramophones, stone records, 45s, 33s, record players and typewriters. The Clock Room may be visited during business hours at Ankara Sincan 1st Organized İndustrial zone in the head-office of Ersa. If notified in advance, Erol Ata takes great pleasure in welcoming visitors to this ''Temple of Time'' and provides information on the timepieces and other rare collection items.
