The clock looks really impressive and attractive at night with those lights ! Must be the largest clock in the world.

With the last update, as of today, the Taipei 101 has been surpassed !

I don't care about the price, I'm collecting money to buy one, will take two to three months at least.

I have some views of abraj-al-bait that are asking me to be pictured I don't think I'll get it before completion. I'll try though.
Latest news: the clock lights (of the front clock of course) are also back and operating after the electric shock. Today the lights of "Allah-u-Akbar" are also on (for the second time).

Please, for those who upload from flicker, use the big size so we don't need to go back to flicker to check the pics again

I mean no offense by this

Does anyone else look at this building and think it would fit in very nicely on the Las Vegas strip?

It looks like Big Ben took steroids. I find it to be quite bulky and not very attractive. Although it's not like I'd be visiting Mecca anytime soon in my lifetime anyways.

They've clearly got a lock on both. But which do you think they were they shooting for most - world's *largest* clock tower or world's *ugliest* clock tower?

No offense but you could have read some of this thread and then you may have noticed that this has been said at least 200 times. Maybe even more.
