Germany has taken initiative within the framework of the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of German-Pakistan bilateral relations.
The German Consulate General has taken up a support request by the Karachi Municipal Cooperation (KMC) to assist in repairs for the 1935 historical clock of the clock tower in the KMC Building on MA Jinnah Road.
The initiative is within the framework of the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of German-Pakistan bilateral relations, as a project of cultural cooperation directed to the preservation of cultural heritage.
Local expertise was not in a position for full and reliable functioning of the tower clock, which led to a deterioration of its state and partial malfunction and functional limitations, the Consulate General reached out for support to the German master clockmaker “Perrot Tower Clocks and Bell Ringers”, in Calw near Stuttgart in Baden-Württemberg, Germany – now in operation for more than 155 years. Berthold Rapp, visiting master technician, stated that “we restore historical installations dating from the 1500s to present times.”
