This sixteen-tonne world clock was opened to the general public on 30 September 1969. Just before the 20th birthday of the GDR, the clock was opened to the general public together with the Berlin television tower. Construction of the clock was part of a wider expansion and redesign of Alexanderplatz as a whole.
By the end of the renovation, the size of the squares was fourfold that of the squares at the end of the Second World War. More than 120 craftsmen and technicians were needed to build the clock, among them the carver Hans-Joachim Kunsch; the Coswig gear factory was also significantly involved in the work.
4 ] There was no generally recognised prize for good engineering in Germany at the beginning, so John did not get one for his work. 1987 a memorial medal was issued with the picture of the world clock. 1997 the towns Tel Aviv and Jerusalem were added to the clock during a necessary reparation of the clock mechanisms - during the construction the towns were omitted because of the policy sensitivity around the then Israeli people.
Two towns that had altered their name since the construction of the clock were also changed: the world clock's principal characteristic is a large twenty-four-sided pillar (the cross-section of which is a periodic icositetragon). Every side of the columns represent one of the Earth's 24 primary timezones and have the name of the large towns that use that timezone.
On the sidewalk under the pillar that is holding the clock, a compass rose is made. There are four smaller analogue watches on the sides of the small pillar that supports the Rotunda, and the whole watch is more than big enough for humans to be standing under it and reading the smaller watches.
This watch is mechanically driven, and in regular use it is always in movement, although the movement is too sluggish to be seen by a person observing - it is only clearly visible in time-lapse shots. Figures - in a row from one to twenty-four - rotate around the outside of the clock all the time.
In order to see the clock, a visitor finds the page of the ice stick corresponding to the urban or temporal area in which he is interested and writes down the number below it. Towns in timezones that are not exactly within an hour of each other, such as New Delhi, which is in the India Standard ( "IST") timezone (UTC+05:30), have their offsets etched next to them in a matter of seconds.
It has been the setting for protest since the seventies and a symbol that Berliners who live nearby use to reach out to others. To mark the GDR's 40-year jubilee on 7 October 1989, opposing party groups held a rally that began at the clock and ended in the Palace of the Republic.
Berlin's television steeple dominates the world clock. On April 24, 1990 a demonstration took place near the clock. ^ Helmut Caspar: Trouble with the world time clock on Alex.
