Default On-topic: Parisian clock


Lovely clock, I wouldn't buy it here when you can get it for 8 quid in
your local Asda, but they've really conjured up that Parisian feeling
with the words "Metro and "Notre-Dame", that classic Parisian image
where you look through the legs of La Tour Eiffel to glimpse the Eiffel
Tower in the distance, that well-known Parisian actress Audrey Hepburn,
born in the fashionable arondissement known as "Belgium", and a
beautiful reproduction of the Metro map, displaying the Ligne du Nord's
junction at Camden-la-Ville.

Slightly more expensive but this Mondaine SBB/CFF/FFS item would be the one for me: http://www.ltmuseumshop.co.uk/homewa...ck-silver.html

It's well designed to be viewed from one end of a platform to the other,
but surely the hands look too thick in a kitchen or living room.

Maybe. But forget about a clock and get one of these instead:
