I was intrigued - and more than a little entertained - when I saw "Rue du Gros-Horloge" on a map of Rouen. Road of the Big Clock? Something like that, anyway. It turns out it's not wrongly named:
I always like clocks that show the phase of the moon; not terribly useful, but a lot of fun. This is definitely one of the most impressive clocks I've seen lately, and it's in particularly good condition considering it's exposed to the elements. I guess a lot of work goes into keeping that sparkle!
