Well obviously this isn't a typing mistake on the worlds largest clock-face (1 typing mistake? believeable, 4? NO) on top of the the tallest hotel in the world.
Its OK in the sense of a possible ithm (لا ترجم). Its FULLY INTENTIONAL, why?

أكبر ساعة في العالم تلفت أنظار ضيوف بيت الله الحرام

The Grand Clock of the world
draws the attention of the guests of House of God



إضاءة الساعة تشاهد من مسافة 30 كلم
Lighting time you see from a distance of 30 km
6 August 2011

مكة المكرمة – جمعان الكناني، عدسة – محمد حامد:
تبدو ساعة مكة المكرمة الشامخة في سماء البيت الحرام معلما بارزا لكل زائر إلى بيت الله بلونها الأخضر، المرحب بضيوف البيت العتيق. الساعة المرشحة لان تكون اكبر ساعة تعانق السماء عالميا يمكن رؤيتها من جميع أحياء مكة المكرمة، وهذا ما يجعلها إضافة جمالية متميزة لمعالم مكة المكرمة بما تمثله من تصميم هندسي متقن، شارك في صنعه نخبة من المهندسين المحليين والعالميين.

وفي بعض المناسبات الإسلامية كدخول الأشهر الهجرية والأعياد، يتم إضاءة 16 حزمة ضوئية عامودية خاصة تصل إلى ما يزيد عن 10 كيلومترات نحو السماء وتبلغ قوة كل حزمة ضوئية عشرة كيلواط. وسيبث أذان المسجد الحرام مباشرة من أعلى ساعة مكة عبر مكبرات صوت خاصة بحيث يمكن سماع الأذان في محيط المسجد الحرام وذلك من مسافة سبعة كيلو مترات تقريبا.

وأثناء الأذان، يتم إضاءة أعلى قمة ساعة مكة بواسطة 21.000 مصباح ضوئي يصدر أضواء لامعة باللونين الأبيض والأخضر يمكن رؤيتها من مسافة تصل إلى 30 كيلو متراً من البرج وهي تشير بذلك إلى وقت دخول الصلاة. كما تمكِّن هذه الإشارات الضوئية ذوي الحاجات الخاصة كضعيفي السمع مثلا أو الذين يتواجدون على بعد من المسجد الحرام من معرفة وقت دخول الصلاة. وتكون واجهة الساعة باللون الأبيض والمؤشرات باللون الأسود نهاراً وباللون الأخضر والمؤشرات باللون الأبيض ليلاً.

Lighting 21 thousand lamps

The biggest clock in the world attracts
the sights of the visitors of the Holy Mosque



The lighting of the clock can be seen from 30 KM
7 August 2011

Mecca – Jama’an Al Kenani
The high clock of Mecca in the sky of the Holy Mosque is a prominent landmark with its green color for every welcomed visitor of the Holy Mosque. The clock that is elected to be the biggest work internationally can be seen from all Mecca neighborhoods, which makes it a distinguished aesthetic addition to the landmarks of Mecca with what it resembles of accurate geometric design where a selection of local and international engineers participated in creating it.

In some Islamic occasions such as the arrival of Hejri months and Eids, 16 thousand special vertical light bundles get lighted to more than 10 kilometers into the sky, where the strength of each light bundle reaches ten kilowatts. The prayer calling of the Holy Mosque will be transmitted live from the tip of Mecca clock through special speakers that will allow hearing the prayer calling of the Holy Mosque from around seven kilometers distance.

During the prayer calling, the top of Mecca clock gets lighted by 21,000 light lamps of bright white and green colors that can be seen of a distance the reaches 30 kilometers from the tower, pointing the approach of prayer time. Those light pointers also allow the disabled people such as those with weak hearing or those that are far away from the Holy mosques to know the prayer timing. The front of the clock is white with black pointers at daytime and green with white pointers in nighttime.
