What does Our Clock Tower mean?
Clock Towers have long been regarded as symbols of community and reliability. They serve as time-keeping devices, as landmarks, as community gathering spots, and as symbols of strength. For those reasons, we adopted the Clock Tower as our MCB symbol in 1978!
Clock Towers today are prized primarily for their architectural value. However, their origin was much more practical. Before watches and home clocks, Clock Towers were the way people knew the time. The first Clock Towers did not have faces and sounded the time with bells. They were placed in towers so the bells could be heard for long distances and they were built in the centers of towns to be heard equally well throughout the whole community.
The oldest known Clock Tower is The Tower of the Winds in Athens, Greece that was built between 200 BC and 50 BC with a combination of sundials and a water-clock as timekeeping devices.
