One of the four clock faces on the Martini Tower in Groningen is displaying the wrong time.
Translation by Traci White
The Groninger Internet Courant reports that the timepiece facing the Grote Markt is running an hour behind. The municipality says that the inaccurate time display is due to a software issue: the hands of the clocks are controlled digitally.
The other three sides of the tower are displaying the correct time, which is decidedly confusing for city dwellers and tourists alike. A special company has been hired to fix the broken clock, but it is expected to take around a week for all sides of the tower to display the same time. If the software error is not fixed by the end of October, then that clock face will actually become the correct time again due to daylight saving time.
