Inside the clock tower of Hallgrímskirkja, the big church which looks like basalt columns. It seems that the clock is just driven by that little motor on the back. There is no mechanism linking the four clock faces and I can see from here that they are all showing slightly different times.
Timekeeping has been a bit confusing for me while I've been in Iceland. Normally on these trips, I have my watch and laptop on local time, my camera and phone, which is also my alarm clock, on UTC, and my bike computer on the most Westerly time zone I expect to visit. Hardly anywhere uses UTC in the Summer so that means that my alarm clock is always wrong and my watch is always right. In Iceland, it's the other way round, because they do use UTC here but my watch doesn't think that time is used during the Summer so it won't show it.
