    Wall Clocks Around the World

    I’ve traveled quite a bit and I have seen a whole lot of the iconic Rolex clocks hanging above jetways and moving sidewalks in various parts of the world’s airports.

    In my mind I always kind of naively assumed they were always Rolex...until getting off my flight today in Singapore’s Changi Airport. I walked off my flight and right above me was this Omega (pic below)! I’d never seen (or at least noticed) an Omega clock in airports.

    Then I got to the Singapore Air lounge, and above the flight info screens was this AP (pic below)

    On my outbound flight via Dubai they had Rolex clocks everywhere (didn’t take a pic) that again, I am accustomed to seeing.

    It got me thinking what other branded wall clocks are out there in other airports around the world, or even cool clocks in office buildings, restaurants, etc.

    Pics or any backstory into how these clocks end up there, how often they change, and what brands are even out there would be fun

    Soooo Rolex, Omega, AP....Dubai, Singapore...what else and where else?

    A watch is the most important piece of jewelry you can wear...

    Rolex sponsored the library building in EPFL college, in Lausanne, Switzerland. The building is named "Rolex Learning Center", and features those clocks everywhere: https://www.alamyimages.fr/photo-ima...-72185108.html (no personal picture at hand, sorry).

    The six clocks in the Abu Dhabi airport departures (an hour southwest of Dubai) are (or were) Tag Heuers. They display the times for 6 different cities.

    As I recall the clocks in the new Etihad arrivals terminal are Rolex.

    No pics though.

    It is always embarrassing being the one paged on the PA system.

    Frankfurt and JFK both sporting the Rolex....

    Also I noticed that none of them have second hands. Even my elementary school genetic wall clocks had sweeping second hands, yet these have none?

    LOL. Nice one. Does the touch screen work? Like I could touch the altimeter and it tells me what elevation it is?
