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

#5 is the only one I've seen. I worked in a building across the street from Old City Hall in Toronto and I saw it every day.

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.
