Weltzeituhr, Berlin

Built in 1969, the 16-ton communist-era Urania World Clock on Alexanderplatz shows the time in different zones around the world.

Built in 1969, the 16-ton communist-era Urania World Clock on Alexanderplatz shows the time in different zones around the world. It comprises a 2.7 metre column with an atlas mosaic, atop which sits a 24 faceted cylinder, each aluminum face representing a time zone and inscribed with major cities in the zone. In the middle of the band is the rotating hour ring, which was originally driven by the converted gearbox of a Trabant, but has been replaced by a more advanced mechanism. On top of the world clock is a simplified model of the solar system which revolves once every minute. The ground around the Weltzeituhr shows a compass rose.
