So they still have not revealed that clock! Or is it just a circular design piece? Only time will tell...

This one has sure taken a long time to finish. I like the crown though. Clock or no clock.

I'm wondering if there are floors inside the crown because only then would the roof height be 1,076 feet. From what I can see it looks legitimate but I don't know for sure.

I'm so excited... and they just still hide it...

They should put up a big led-screen, so they can display a clock on it. That will save them a lot of trouble.

May be just a "Cross" inside the big circle similar to others on the border.

I thought this was shining through all the time. now that they revealed it, does that really mean that is it? not sure. could still be that this is the frame afterall. like those weird cables were revealed on infinity tower, and scaffolding came down, still they are installing stuff.

They could just put a big stick coming out of the middle & call it a sundial.

I don´t get it. They´ve been hiding it all along and now when they reveal it there is nothing but a crappy circle with nothing in the middle. I had quite expectations for this but now it´s just meaningless and ugly.

The hiding was because they were working underneath, the 'all these time' is because they were slow on their work ..... and there is no clock because we knew since 2007 9or was it 2006} that there will not be any, cause the Dubai Municipality didn't approve it.

Dubai has a Municipality that approves buildings?
Wow, if they approved this, just imagine the ones they rejected
