A living tribute to Switzerland's most venerated industry, this colorful clock was built in 1955 despite a number of technical difficulties. It has a diameter of five meters (16 feet) and a circumference of 16 meters (52 feet) and its 2.5 meter (eight feet), second hand is the longest in the world. The clock is painstakingly designed, encompassing 6500 plants and is set in the Jardin Anglais on the lakeside promenade. A new design is created every season, each one as tasteful as the last. It is one of Geneva's most photographed sites.
