Smith of Derby, the world-renowned clockmakers, have released the first images of the tower clock for the new Majlis Parliament building in Muscat, Oman.
Four 4.8 sq m clocks will form the summit of what, at 64 metres high, will be the highest clock tower in Oman, whilst a 2m-high clock, set over a mosaic map of the country, will sit at ground level.
The new Majlis building in the centre of Muscat is due to open later this year.
Jim Foster, of Smith of Derby, who is leading the project, said: “The clock tower at the Majlis will be an iconic centerpiece of the new Parliament building, similar to how Big Ben sits at the Houses of Parliament in London. We are sure it will have a similar impact in becoming a national attraction.
“Increasingly designers want buildings and creations that stand out from the crowd. People do not just glance at a Smith of Derby timepiece and we are confident it is something people will come from all over the country to see.”
Smith of Derby is, this year, celebrating working in the Middle East for 40 years, and Mr Foster said the project “underlines our close relationship with the region”. He added: “It’s a great honour to be working on the new Parliament building; it helps cement our long-standing and continuing closeness with the region, creating timeless clocks blended with the latest technical innovation.”
Installation of the clocks’ fixings began in April, with the clocks being installed from June.
