The flower clock in Geneva is a commendable piece of technical marvel and art. It symbolizes the affluent and booming watch industry. It's basically a garden of flowers, and the clock was only made up of more than 6000 different flowers before, but now has more to it. It's now made up of eight circles which change their colors every season. The flowers are also changed in intervals but the dimensions are kept intact.
