Napier City Council acted on the Westshore Development Association's suggestion to erect a public clock marking the Westshore approach to the city. Modernist in style, the lofty clock stands in a small garden featuring succulents on the corner of Meeanee Quay and Pandora Road.
The clock pedestal is a stylised interpretation of a ship's figurehead. Designed by then assistant superintendent of reserves David Low, it was built by council staff and dedicated in the spring of 1966.
The Keep Napier Beautiful programme worked on restoring the gardens around the clock and creating a real feature of the clock.
