Two Clocks

Two clocks more or less agree about the time – well what else would you expect in the home of accurate clock-making, Switzerland? The one on the left is on a station of Swiss Railways, an institution that is also known for its accurate timekeeping; the one on the right is in the Swiss city of Zug. Neither clock face shows any actual numbers – children have to learn to tell the time on analogue clocks and watches just from the position of the hands. With digital clocks making things so much easier, one wonders if the skill of telling the time on clocks like these will gradually die out?
