Horloge Fleurie - Flower Clock 3.9 rating


Horloge Fleurie is a flower clock in Jardin Anglais next to the Pont du Mont-Blanc, created in 1955 by the city of Geneva to honor Swiss watchmakers. Originally designed by architect Paysagiste Armand Auberson, it was modernized in 2002 by Josée Pitteloud and Jean Stern. With a diameter of 5 metres and 8 different colored dials, it is made of about 6500 perfectly manicured flowering plants and shrubs which change seasonally. Its 2.5 metre long second hand is the longest in the world. The Horloge Fleurie's time is set by satellite to ensure it adheres to stringent Swiss standards for precision.
