Wouldn't it be great if people who dislike this building had the decency to express their opinions with respect? It would also be nice if they would explain more specifically why they don't like it ... again, in a respectful way.

It'd be funny if the clock had the rolex name on it. Still waiting for a 1680 resolution picture of the clock at 4:20 for my wallpaper.

Dunno, the hands will near overlap making it look lame.

He needs a photo at 1:50

Which is what most watches are set to for photographic purposes.


I'm a massive fan of the clock at night...I think it looks brilliant.
