A visit to Triberg in the Black Forest, Germany isn’t complete without a visit to see the largest cuckoo clock in the world. It is 60 times bigger than the traditional version, it’s as tall as a real house! I loved watching for the cuckoo as the clock struck 3!
Probably the world’s most famous clock, Big Ben is instantly recognisable as a symbol of Britain to the world. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1987. I was fortunate enough to climb up to the top of the clock tower in 2012 and see Big Ben, (which is the giant bell), up close. It weighs 13 tons and is 7 feet and 6 inch tall.
@Samox24 , you post such great pictures! I love cuckoo clocks! My dad got us one when we were kids. Then we inherited it but it kept really bad time and there was no one who knew how to fix it properly. A visit to Triberg is worth it just to see that clock!
The clock by Maarten Baas in the Schiphol at the Amsterdam airport is incredible. Each minute the hands are redrawn on the clock by a man behind the translucent clock face. (It is a video I believe). It is very cool. Check it out.
This is a photo I took whilst in Singapore of the Floral Clock. Measuring seven metres in diameter, the Floral Clock blends timekeeping precision with botanical artistry. Its design is inspired by the timepieces of Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet, and features the signature octagonal bezel and hexagonal screws of its Royal Oak collection.
With clock hands guided by GPS technology, it is presently the only sizable public floral clock in Singapore. It was a gift to Gardens by the Bay from Audemars Piguet on the occasion of Singapore’s 50th anniversary which was back in 2015.
