Wu Xiuying, a 70-year-old woman in Jilin, Jilin province has collected more than a thousand large and small timepieces from home and abroad in the past 32 years, spending more than 100,000 RMB. Her nearly 200-square-meter residence houses all kinds of old-fashioned wall clocks and other timepieces, making it a small museum.
