Well... a clock

The architecture of this clock is rather pretty, it looks nice and welcoming, but it's definitely not something really important to see.

Perhaps I'm not the best person to judge as I have no interest in clocks or know of its historical importance. I would not go out of my way to see it and if you are passing through the jewellery quarter you are not likely to miss it. However it is a minor ornate landmark.

It is a lovely little clock, situated on a roundabout in the Jewellery Quarter. You can't miss it when you visit the area. I feel that its ornate style is really suited to the location and evokes an atmosphere of the quality of the work of the jewellers, who craft beautiful pieces here.

This ornate clock has stood in the jewellery quarter for 110 years. It was erected on 1904 in memory of Joseph Chamberlain. I think it is worth seeing and it is a well known landmark in the area

A useful point of reference in the Jewellery Quarter, but being stuck in the middle of a traffic island its rather difficult to get a good close look at it and it would seem that the Council doesn't think that much of it, or they would make sure it told the correct time more often than it does. If you... More

It amazes me that things like this are listed on tourist maps. The clock is on a mini roundabout in the centre and is definitely worth a look.

It's an ornamental clock in the middle of a small traffic island at the centre of The Jewellery Quarter. It's not like it's Big Ben or the fantastic clock in the centre of Prague. It's not even very big. As a school boy, I used to do a summer job in a factory a few yards from it. Yes, I... More
