In this article I would like to talk about a passion, which are floral clocks, seems to me a very beautiful and special decoration somewhere, here you have a small history of its beginnings and different places with floral clocks, hope you like them and if you travel to any place of the described approach seeing them, we started with a description.
A flower clock is a large decorative clock face formed by flower beds, usually mounted in parks or other public recreational areas, according to foodanddrinkjournal.
The first floral clock was the brainchild of John McHattie and watchmaker James Ritchie. It was planted for the first time in the spring of 1903 in the gardens of Princes Street, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom. That year the installation was composed of only the hour hand: only in the following year was also installed the timer. In the year 1905 was added a cuckoo singing every hour. Shortly after, this clock was imitated by the rest of the United Kingdom and more evening in several places around the world. The truth is that I have seen many floral clocks on different trips that I have made during the holiday period and this is really very nice.
In Edinburgh the clock mechanism is located inside the base of the column that holds the statue of the poet Allan Ramsay, below. The first mechanism used recovered parts of the Church of the parish of Elie in Fife, was installed by Ritchie. A new engine was installed in 1934 and is maintained by Ritchie.
Many of these watches have the engine located in the ground beneath the substrate, in which the flowers are planted, it looks like the face of a clock with movable hands which can also house plants.
The flower only with two sides by pointers with same system clock are in Zacatlán de Las manzanas, Puebla, Mexico. It has two faces, each with five meters in diameter. It was built by a local company: watches centenary.
Michael Jackson had a floral clock on his ranch, Neverland. Other floral clocks can be found in the garden of international peace, at the border of North Dakota (United States) and Manitoba (Canada) and in Frankfort, Kentucky, in the United States.
I have always aroused much interest this type of watches, it seems to me that in addition to decorate it is super funny and very tourist to have one of these watches, what happens is that in the recent past are disappearing by the amount of money involved in its maintenance and many places have decided to delete them to save on the cost of flowers, water, etc.
