    I am a pocket watch collector, but it's a rainy day here in Dubrovnik. So I am posting pictures of the old tower clock in Dubrovnik. Here are pictures I took of the jaquemarts in the bell tower.

    The old clock itself is now in the Rector's Palace Museum.

    The old "octopus" hour hand is in the museum (the clock only has one hand).

    The original jaquemarts are there too.

    Here is the museum's description of the clock and jaquemarts.

    If it weren't pouring, I'd step outside and take a picture of the dial on the clock tower.

    For a California boy, Dubrovnik's weather today seemed Arctic. One must eat, however. On the way back to my hotel from dinner, I photographed the clock tower. Note the digital display.

    I have never seen the "face" on the back of a tower clock movement reading clockwise
    The one I have seen on local, 25 miles North of London UK, Churches have all been anticlockwise
    That is what you would see looking at the exterior face through the back of the movement

    Those pictures of the original clock, figures, etc. as well as the evening shot of the tower clock too, so cool!

    Thank for posting and sharing.
