The Rockwell Automation Headquarters is an office building located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The current clock tower stands at 86 meters and is listed in Guinness World Records as the world’s largest four-faced clock. Because the octagonal faces are nearly twice the size of the clocks in London’s Big Ben, chimes were never added in order to allow Big Ben to remain the largest four-faced chiming clock in the world. Each hour hand is long and weighs 490 pounds (220 kg). Each minute hand is 20 feet (6.1 m) long and weighs 530 pounds (240 kg). The hour markings are high.
The clock has been called "The Polish Moon," referring to the historically Polish neighborhood in which it is based (see St. Stanislaus Catholic Church history). In recent years, it has also been called the "Mexican Moon," reflecting the change in the area's ethnic composition.(Though both ethnicities have presences) Its lighted faces have been a faithful navigation aid for Lake Michigan mariners over the years, except during the 1973 oil crisis when the clock went unlit from November 1973 to June 1974.
The tower made an appearance on the NASCAR Busch Series race car of Mike Bliss in 2004. To celebrate Rockwell Automation and Allen-Bradley's 100 year association, the #20 Rockwell Automation car was painted all black with gold accents along with the Rockwell/Allen-Bradley 100 Year symbol on the hood and quarter panels. The Bell Tower was put on the car in front of the wheel well.
