Big Ben is not a clock, it's the bell.

#7 is wrong, Big Ben is the bell in the clock tower!

The one at Mecca is quite something. I was working at Mecca University with some of the university architectural lecturers in December 2019 and drove past it daily. It stands at almost 2,000ft and can be seen for miles, the surrounding high ground does nothing to hide it. The worlds highest clock tower. Some of the local people love it, other locals are less keen. It is quite an amazing piece of architecture to view though.

This seems to be very one sided and yes #7 is not correct (lived under it for several years)

What about the oldest astronomical clock in the world, in Prague? Some of these clocks are not impressive.

Old City Hall, Toronto Canada is my favourite. I used to see that clock out my office window. That's my favourite.
