The clock has been renovated by experts since the earthquake damage of 2010-11. It is back to its former glory.

when they renovated the clocktower a few years ago it went from being a drab looking building to a wonderful piece of heritage. Beautiful with its gold highlighs a treat to see. Hopefully it will be safe after all the quakes

The clock was damaged in the February earthquake and the hands stopped at 12:51, the exact time of the quake. Clock was beautifully restored before the quake and is still very beautiful if not slightly bent now.
