From series “Enchanting Flower Clocks Built by Humans”
Year: 2001.

There is no seconds hand on the clock, but there is a nice illumination system for numbers, so it will be amazing to enjoy the clock at nightfall.

Floral Clock on Poklonnaya Gora, Russia Every year, florists plant about 7 000 flowers to decorate the clock. The main type of plant used in the spring, is pansy. Already in June, the seedlings of flowers are replaced by begonias. During the season, the clock changes its appearance several times. Despite the fact that irresistible appearance is the main attraction for tourists, the main feature lies in the mechanism.

Hands of the clock are quite large and heavy. The length of the minute hand is 4.5 meters. Experts spent a lot of time and effort to design the optimum shape of the arrow. They have to look quite massive to fit the dial’s scale and, at the same time, not to weigh more than 30 kg in order to prevent premature wear of the mechanism. It’s possible to admire the flower clock on Poklonnaya Gora for approximately 6 months of the year. The season usually starts in May and runs until the end of October. In 2006, the last modernization took place. The mechanism was linked via GPS to the satellite that adjusts the current time. The flower clock in Moscow is one of the most accurate on the planet.
