  • A magic clock ! Definetely to be seen. it's absolutely fabulous and in perfect order! A treat for artlovers 
  • i see this clock most days when at work cleaning the streets.it never fails to amaise me how great it looks and the time people took to construct it .a fantastic time piece you need to see to believe 
  • Because the clocks are located in the central part of the city specifically to get them, just passing by, stop for a few minutes and enjoy these watches. Attract the eye.
