<br />
The clock was built by the private sector in cooperation with Tehran Municipality in two years. <br />

The clock is equipped with separate motors to set its triple hands in motion. It is designed to operate with minimum error and is automatically set up by a computerized system. <br />

This is not the world's biggest clock. The Colgate Clock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colgate_Clock) is a little big larger.
