“A great landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I'm glad that time doesn't always bring about change. Seeing the Allen-Bradley clock always brings about nostalgic memories of good times over the years in Milwaukee with friends and family. I hope they always keep it up and going. It's a timeless classic to use a play on words.

“Well, it's there and it's big”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Driving down I-94, or from whatever direction you view this 4-sided behemoth, you definitely know the time.

Since Rockwell bought the building, I imagine it's now the Rockwell clock, but I'd like to think that, like a certain tower in Chicago, it will always be known by its original name.

Is the A-B Clock still the largest four-face clock in the world? Don't know, but it's sure big.

“A Milwaukee Landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Until recently, this clock was the largest four-sided clock in the world. If you visit downtown Milwaukee or its near south side, it's hard not to see it, so in this sense it's really a "can't miss" when you come to town. Once a year, the public is invited to see the clock from the inside as part of the "Doors Open" event. As I write this, that opportunity is next weekend. I'm looking forward to checking out the tower.
