The Club de l'Horloge (literally The Clock Club) is a French national conservative association founded in 1974. Sharing some similarities with the Nouvelle Droite movement, the club centers itself around the values of "liberalism, nationalism and democracy." Its president is Henry de Lesquen.



The Club de l'Horloge was founded by Henry de Lesquen, Jean-Yves Le Gallou and GRECE member Yvan Blot. The Club de l'Horloge and the related GRECE, founded by Alain de Benoist, would later clash, although both remained staunchly anti-egalitarian. In 1980 they were described as "Quite a separate phenomenon" from GRECE. The Club de l'Horloge is supportive of uniting the French nationalist forces in one political movement.

Lysenko Prize

Since 1990, the Club de l'Horloge awards each year the "Lysenko Prize" to an author or person who "has contributed the most to scientific and historical misinformation, using ideological methods and arguments." Daniel Cohn-Bendit won the prize in 2002 "for his exceptional contribution to the euro campaign," the late John Kenneth Galbraith in 1994 for "his defense of the minimum wage and socialist fight against unemployment."
