I hate the clocks in Tenerife

Tenerife, as with all the Canary Islands, is a great place to visit. The weather is excellent and the scenery is also very good, but there is one fault with Tenerife, the clocks. Back in England we have 60 seconds to a minute, 60 minutes to an hour and 24 hours in a day. The Canary Islands claim to use the same system, but the clocks appear to be running much quicker. This shortens the minutes and hours and the days seem to pass by too quickly. The next time that I come here I will a British clock with me, although I cannot be sure that the dreaded Tenerife Time Demon will not take control of it.

@Drosophila The clock I wanted to share is not directly available on YouTube, the Tobar Giant Backwards Clock, on a commercial building in Beccles in England... But I did quite enjoy this video, and I'd bet our very own @TheHorse has most of the gear to make one... And in parts of Ireland, we don't need a clock to tell us we've stepped back in time...
