I really love some of the clock and time-themed stamps posted so far. Here's a pair from my small collection. Nomos is a German company that makes very fine watches. I'm not sure if these are official postage stamps issued by Deutsche Post or not, however.

On November 27, 2001 the Netherlands released its "December" discount stamp sheet of 20 different .27 euro/.60 guilder self-adhesive stamps. For 2001, the stamps are interesting collages, arranged in five horizontal rows of four stamps each. The stamp in position 1 (Sc #1085 A) features a clock at five minutes until midnight of the new year.

This January 17, 1995 70c value (Sc #730) of Zimbabwe is from the "Places of Economic and Historical Importance" definitive series. It depicts the "Boggie Clock Tower" in Gweru, central Zimbabwe. It is named after a man with the surname Bogie, but the spelling has somehow changed.

The cancel is MBARE MUSIKA, a southern suburb of Harare and the site of a large produce market.

From zimbabwetourism.net, "The tower was erected in 1928 by Jeannie, the wife of Major William James Bogie, in memory of her late husband."
