So after a little over 8 months the flashy Omega clock is off the clock tower and is being replaced by the one it had replaced. Omega had a three year contract, and quoting Gulf news:
"We have entered into a contract with a local agent for three years. He will be making a payment of Dh750,000 to the municipality [in lieu of publicity] and will be responsible for the maintenance of the clocks over the three-year period. One advantage of linking the clocks to GPS is that it does away with the need to manually adjust the hands," said Al Fuqae."
So I suppose recession strikes again, but for once I feel good about it!! :D
Sorry for the crappy image, but it's difficult trying to take a picture while driving especially with a really slow focusing mobile camera... :|
