Astronomical clock on the Zytglogge tower in Bern, Switzerland (@ Blaine Harrington/age fotostock)
- This clock has been chiming here since 1530 and is a cause for great national pride.""And that\s coming from a country famous for watches!
- Legend has it that this city\s founder named the town in honour of the first animal he saw on a hunt.""Fortunately for the city he saw a bear rather than a squirrel
- This centuries-old timepiece will tell you not only the hour, but the relative positions of the sun, moon and zodiacal constellations.""Despite all these snazzy extras, its name means ‘time bell\
- On the hour, every hour these little figurines do a little dance and find themselves in a spin.""But there\s no need to hang around waiting, watch them do it now
