Sundial Compass: BloodFeatherBushcraft

Top 10 clocks around the world.

It may be a chilly spring in the Northern Hemisphere and a
scorching autumn in Southern Hemisphere countries like Australia, but
time is marching on as clocks are changed across the planet. Europe and
North America have already sprung forward to daylight savings time and
Southern Hemisphere countries are falling back to standard time.

That's why online travel consultants
( figure it's a great time to celebrate their
list of the Top 10 clocks around the world. Reuters has not endorsed
this list: 1. The Grand Central Terminal Clock, New York, NY, USA This
timekeeper, which sits atop the information booth in Grand Central
Station's main concourse, just rang in its 100th birthday
(that's 73,000 rotations of those hands in case you're
counting). Featured in plenty of postcards, Hollywood blockbusters and
real-life marriage proposals, the timepiece is topped with a compass and
was originally built by Connecticut-based Seth Thomas Clock Company. The
clock's four faces are made of opal, surrounded by brass and
illuminated by lights, making it somewhat of a beacon amid the crowd of
hurried passengers darting toward train gates. "Meet me under the
clock" - a phrase uttered by countless movie stars and
1. Acting or arriving exactly at the time appointed; prompt.

2. Paid or accomplished at or by the appointed time.

3. Precise; exact.

 train passengers - is a household saying in this city, understood by
residents and tourists alike. 2. Floral Clock, Niagara Parks, Queenston,
Ontario, Canada The Floral Clock does more than keep time - it keeps
changing. Inspired by a similar clock in the Princes Street Gardens in
Edinburgh, the clock was built in 1950 by Ontario Hydro and is the
subject of almost as many photos as its high-profile neighbor - Niagara
Falls. Its 40-foot face features 15,000 to 20,000 seasonal plants and
flowers, arranged in an intricate design that changes twice a year. The
Floral Clock sits on top of its mechanism, motor and power source, and
is regularly inspected for accuracy. It's accompanied by chimes
from the tower at the back of the display, which also houses photos of
nearly every floral design that has adorned the clock's face. The
timepiece features hands made of stainless steel tubing that weigh an
impressive 1,250 pounds, and a water garden at the base of the clock
filled with coins from wish-makers. 3.
Prague Astronomical Clock
Prague, Czech Republic This medieval astronomical clock was installed in
1410 and is situated on the southern wall of the Old Town City Hall in
Prague's Old Town Square. Far from a traditional timepiece, the
clock has an astronomical dial that shows the position of the sun and
moon, and a calendar dial marking the date, which displays medallions of
each zodiac sign representing the months of the year. Each hour, on the
hour, wooden figures of the 12 apostles and other sculptures move
through a window above the astronomical dial. The structure is thought
to be the third oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest
one still operating. The unique figurine show makes this a popular stop
for visitors. 4. The Samrat

, Jaipur, India Though not exactly a
clock, the Samrat Yantra - or supreme instrument - is the largest
sundial in the world, measuring more than 88 feet in height. Made of
marble and local stone with a
 : see sundial.
 that stands at 90 feet, this
time-keeping attraction can tell accurate time, with just a two-second
margin of error, day or night. The sundial and the observatory where
it's located were commissioned in 1728 by the Maharaja Sawai Jai
Singh II. The movement of a shadow cast on the sundial is highly
visible, as it shifts at a rate of six centimeters per minute. Observers
can climb a
flight of stairs

 on the gnomon to check the time from above.
Shepherd Gate Clock

Royal Greenwich Observatory
 astronomical observatory established in 1675 by Charles II of England; formerly known as the Royal Observatory and located at Greenwich, it moved to Herstmonceux Castle, Sussex, in 1946. In the 1990 new headquarters at Cambridge Univ.
, London UK This
timepiece is the public face of
Greenwich Mean Time
 or  (GMT), the former name for mean solar time at the original site of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England, which is located on the prime meridian.
 and serves as a
symbol of standardized time keeping. The clock is mounted on the wall
outside the gate of the Royal Greenwich Observatory, which is home to
the Greenwich Meridian Line, marking the Prime Meridian of the World at
zero degrees longitude. All other locations on Earth are measured using
this line as a reference point. Installed by Charles Shepherd in 1852,
the clock features the 24-hour analogue dial and was an early example of
an electric clock. Controlled by a master clock inside the building,
it's part of a series of timepieces that first operated by sending
electrical signals to a clock at London Bridge, which then transferred
pulses to other clocks throughout England. 6. Cosmo Clock 21, Yokohama,
Japan This digital timekeeper brings new meaning to the age old act of
"rocking around the clock." Situated on a giant ferris wheel -
once the largest ferris wheel in the world - at Yokohama Cosmo World,
Cosmo Clock 21 is the world's largest clock standing at 369 feet
tall. This carnival ride-clock combo was originally built for a 1989
exposition and still transforms into a light show of sorts at night with
striking patterns of neon lights moving along its spokes. And, yes, you
can in fact rock around this clock; the ferris wheel has 60 seats and
can hold about 480 people at a time. One rotation takes 15 minutes
(timed to the

) and gives passengers a panoramic view of
Yokohama. 7. Abraj Al-Bait Clock Tower, Mecca, Saudi Arabia This ticker
takes top place when it comes to many world records. Completed in 2011,
it's now the tallest clock tower in the world (towering almost
2,000 feet over the holy mosque of Mecca), houses one of the tallest
hotels in the world (Fairmont's 76-story Makkah Clock Royal Tower),
and boasts the world's largest clock face (140 feet wide). A spire
on top of the clock also makes this the second tallest building in the

 only by Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The four clock faces shine
green at night, and are reportedly visible from about 15 miles away. But
telling time isn't this clock's only task - it also marks
daily prayers with calls announced to the Muslim world from the
tower's loudspeakers that are audible four miles away. 8. Cevahir
Shopping Center Clock, Istanbul, Turkey When you visit the Cevahir
Shopping Center, don't forget to look up. Situated on the nearly
27,000 square feet of transparent ceiling is the second largest clock in
the world. The face of the timepiece measures more than 118 feet in
diameter and features a mesmerizing geometric pattern. Each digit
displayed - only the three, six, nine and 12 - stands at 10 feet tall.
Every year, millions of visitors flock to the mall that houses the clock
- also known as ili Culture and Trade Center. The shopping centre opened
in 2005 and is the largest shopping mall in Europe with multiple
performance spaces as well as a small roller coaster inside. 9. Big
Ben's Great Clock, London, England No list of clocks would be
complete without mention of the Great Clock that's part of Big Ben.
Attached to the Palace of Westminster, this famous clock tower was
installed in 1859 and remains one of London's most popular
attractions. Whether you're walking by or taking a spin on the
London Eye, simply catching a glimpse of Big Ben's elaborate,
majestic design and hearing the Great Bell chime on time make for an
awe-inspiring experience. The name "Big Ben" technically
refers specifically to the Great Bell inside the tower, but often serves
as a catch-all term for the clock, bell and tower. Featuring four faces
and a 683-pound pendulum, the clock's 13.7-foot-long minute hands
travel the equivalent of 118 miles per year. Twenty-eight 85-watt energy
efficient light bulbs now keep each of Big Ben's clock dials
shining bright each night. A Latin inscription sits beneath each face:
"Domine Salvam fac Reginam
 /nos·trum/ () a quack, patent, or secret remedy.

A medicine whose effectiveness is unproved and whose ingredients are usually secret; a quack remedy.
 Victoriam primam," which
means "O Lord, save our Queen Victoria the First." 10.
Glockenspiel, Munich, Germany Another

Munich's Glockenspiel only truly marks the time twice - or three
times during the spring and summer - per day. But when this structure
announces the time, it does so in grand fashion. The chiming clock has
43 bells and is situated in Marienplatz square in the tower of the Neues
Rathaus. Originally finished in 1907, it chimes at 11:00 a.m. and noon
each day (and at 5:00 p.m. between March and October). When it goes off,
life-sized figurines act out various events from Munich's history,
such as a dance from the year of the plague and the wedding of Duke
Wilhelm V to
Renata of Lorraine

. Each show runs for about 15 minutes and
finishes with a golden bird emerging at the top of the structure and
chirping three times. Now, that's how the passing of time should be
