The gorgeous Chester Clock. The clock/tower marks the site of the orginal entrance to the Roman fortress and town (Deva Victrix), ca. AD 74 or 75. Rebuilt through the centuries, the present gateway dates to AD 1768 and the clock was added in 1899 to commemorate the Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee in 1897.

Eastgate Clock (Chester, England): The Eastgate clock is Chester's best known landmark and the second most photographed clock in the world after Big Ben. The clock was placed on the Eastgate in 1899 and commemorates Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee of 1897. The wrought-iron was made by John Douglas' cousin James Swindley of Handbridge. This clock is by J.B. Joyce of Whitchurch. Until 1974 it was hand wound once a week.
The Eastgate Clock is a turret clock built above the Eastgate of the ancient walls of Chester. Although the original gate was Roman, the present gate was built in Georgian times to allow coaches through. However, the clock wasn't added until the Victorian era to celebrate Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee. The clock is considered a landmark of Chester, and is the second most photographed timepiece in the United Kingdom after Big Ben.

Prague Astronomical Clock
View On Black The Prague Astronomical Clock or Prague Orloj (Czech: Pražský orloj [pra?ski? ?rl?i]) is a medieval astronomical clock located in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. The Orloj is mounted on the southern wall of Old Town City Hall in the Old Town Square and is a popular tourist attraction. The Orloj is composed of three main components: the astronomical dial, representing the position of the Sun and Moon in the sky and displaying various astronomical details; "The Walk of the Apostles", a clockwork hourly show of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures; and a calendar dial with medallions representing the months. The oldest part of the Orloj, the mechanical clock and astronomical dial, dates back to 1410 when it was made by clockmaker Mikuláš of Kadan and Jan Šindel, the latter a professor of mathematics and astronomy at Charles University. Later, presumably around 1490, the calendar dial was added and clock facade decorated with gothic sculptures. In 1552 it was repaired by Jan Taborský, clock-master of Orloj, who also wrote a report on the clock where he mentioned Hanuš as maker of the clock. The Orloj stopped working many times in the centuries after 1552, and was repaired many times. In the 17th century moving statues were added, and figures of the Apostles were added after major repair in 1865-1866. The Orloj suffered heavy damage on May 7 and especially May 8, 1945, during the Prague Uprising, when Germans directed incendiary fire from several armored vehicles and an anti-aircraft gun to the south-west side of the Old Town Square in an effort to silence the provocative broadcasting initiated by the National Committee on May 5. The hall and nearby buildings burned along with the wooden sculptures on the Orloj and the calendar dial face made by Josef Mánes. The machinery was repaired, the wooden Apostles restored by Vojtech Sucharda, and the Orloj started working again in 1948, but only after significant effort . There exists a good deal of misinformation relating to the construction of the Orloj . For a long time it was believed that the Orloj was constructed in 1490 by clockmaster Jan Ruže (also called Hanuš) and his assistant Jakub Cech. Another fictitious story involves the clockmaker Hanuš being blinded on the order of the Prague Councillors. From Wikipedia
