The famous "Floral Clock" in Niagara Falls, Ontario. All the electricity lines are from one of the hydro sites near the Falls, I've seen prettier color combinations, but .... the face of the clock is nothing but flowers/plants. The "Aero Car" is a like a cable car and it takes you over the Niagara River as it exits the Falls. Not for the faint of heart.


Now that''s a Clock.

I will start the challenge with time pieces, way back thousands of years ago time was told by sundials and different water devices and then we got around to clocks and in 1505 Peter Henlein created the first pocket watch and it wasn't until 1810 that Abraham Louis Breguet created a wristwatch for the Queen of Naples, this caught on with the ladies but it took a fare while before men started wearing them. We seem to have come a long way since then.
Would be very interested to see your timepieces and the story behind them, if any.

Couple of decades ago, I was on a temp assignment in Zurich, Switzerland. One weekend afternoon, beautiful day, sunny, blue sky, standing in a crowded bar with the windows open, enjoying the vibe. Started talking to a VERY attractive Swiss woman next to me, she very stylishly attired. She couldn't speak English, I couldn't speak French, but we settled on Italian. She was going on and on about how great anything made in Switzerland was, prime example being watches. On and on and ON about how I should buy a Swiss watch and I'd be a fool if I didn't take the opportunity to buy one right here in the motherland. I told her I had a Swiss watch, holding up my wrist (photo below). The look of horror and disgust on her face was priceless: "That's NOT a Swiss watch!!!" I replied, "Of course it is, I bought it right here in Zurich..." She just didn't see the humor and any fantasy I had disappeared along with her into the crowd.

Thank you Simon and it is an interesting Challenge but unfortunately I no longer wear a watch...

I retired in May 1995 and the next day I was out with my pod digging wild garlic and he asked my for the time....11:25,, and I thought...this watch has managed my live and no I am retired and no longer care what time it is,,,so I took my watch off and threw it into the woods..Life is so much better since then lol..
