I marvel at the history and artistry exhibited in your city. Now, if they could only make the watch melt à la Dali :-)

TexWisGirl said...

pretty view!

VP said...

Do you have a picture of the old one?

Sharon said...

That is a sad note! But, on the positive side, this is a very nice street scene.

Pity! Love the pic though.

wow, beautiful clock ! :)

Kay said...

Old clocks can be so beautiful and elegant. I wonder if it got to a point where they couldn't get replacement parts for the old one, except at very great cost. And look at all the advertising Rolex now gets for taking its place.

Randy said...

That's too bad. Beautibul buildings.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I don't know what the old one was like but this one looks pretty good to my eye.

Sami said...

Pity, this one seems too modern for the surrounding relief work in the building.
Pretty view though with the castle at the top.

Lowell said...

It probably got to be too expensive. Have you ever priced a Rolex? :-)

This is a beautiful scene! Looks like a castle on the hill.

Nice perspective of the city with buildings climbing the hill.

It's still a totally amazing sight JM I love the buildings all the way up the hill. Blimey Rolex got a good deal there didn't they!
