Flower clock

One of Geneva's most photographed monuments is without doubt the flower clock, which was created in 1955. It includes the biggest direct-drive hand in the world (2.5 m long) and moves at a rate of precisely 27 cm each second (15.17 metres/minute) - a true feat of technical prowess. That this complex mechanism is matched only by its beauty is a tribute to the masterful skills of Geneva's horticulturalists. Address: Jardin Anglais, Promenade du Lac
