This clock’s a source of comfort for me because I always pass it on my daily commute to school/work and since I don’t wear a watch it almost always reassures me that I am NOT running late. Its at the junction that leads to Club Road and McLeod Road, and is one of the few structures that hasn’t been overrun by posters, graffiti or corporate logos. Does anyone know how long its been here for though?

    1993 (or maybe 1992). it was erected to beautify the city for the upcoming OIC su mmit in Karachi. Surprisingly. the clock didnt come on time :P this entire roundaabout was constructed for the summit, along the same time as the beautiful large roundabout hosting a wnderful victorian white fountain was torn down to make a modern structure and signal (changing the structure of driving in poakistan where to make a turn, you take the inner turning rather than go around tha outer turning), later known as Schon Circle.

    Glad this clock works.right after teh summit, the lock stopped working, and then made to work after about two years i reckon.

    its a Rado watch, which was originally supposed to be gold plated, but the officials decided it would look better as a silver plated one.
