A little history
The Horloge fleurie (Flower clock) was created in 1955 and includes some 12,000 flowers. The first attempt was very decorative, but it was unthinkable to create a clock without delivering the time with Swiss precision. The time it indicates is transmitted by satellite and its seconds hand is the largest in the world at 2.5 m.
In 2017, a new floral concept freshly restored the Horloge fleurie (Flower clock). New hands with a graceful design were generously donated by Patek Philippe to the City of Geneva.
