At the foot of the Pont du Mont Blanc (the Mont Blanc Bridge) are two sights that signal you've entered the center of Geneva: The Flower Clock and the National Monument. The former pays homage to the Swiss clock making industry. Some of the finest watchmakers in world are found in this little Alpine nation--Tag Heuer, Rolex, Omega, Swatch. You can get a Tag Heuer for as much as CHF 6900 or a Swatch for as little as CHF 100.
The second photo commemorates Geneva joining the rest of Switzerland in 1815. The Flower Clock and the National Monument are next to each other and are a great point for starting your tour of Geneva.
