100-year-old clock

This 100-year-old clock owned by Anton Rietz, an innkeeper on the shores of a small lake in upper Bavaria (West Germany) is claimed to be the largest clock in the world. The clock weighs 25 cwt and shows 14 clock-faces, 4 of which tell the time in Berlin, Vienna, Munich and Paris respectively. But it will not be as accurate as the world’s largest clock, which will become part of Dusseldorf  Television Tower from March 1982. The new clock, connected with the Brunswick atomic clock, rated the most exact one in the world, will tell the time decimally on a vertical scale covering and area from 40 metres to 160 metres up the 225-metre-tall telecommunications tower.
