How large should my tower clock be?

The rule of thumb for the size of a tower clock is a 1 to 10 ratio. However, this is only a rule of thumb – sometimes tall towers have smaller clocks, or large clocks are placed at the entrance of buildings. Buildings that have long horizontal dimensions also typically require a larger clock than the rule of thumb.
