Spitz Clock Ruined by City of Santa Fe

The City of Santa Fe has ruin the iconic landmark on the historic Plaza.

The Spitz Clock is one of only 4 known left in this country. The outdoor wooden-framed  pocket watch clock named the Spitz Clock is from the late 1800s and has been a well known landmark in Santa Fe for over 130 years.

For months now people have notice some dried egg on the clear cover over the face of the clock, an obvious remnant of vandalism.  After months of neglect, the City somehow decides to send in the anti-graffiti squad. With hazard suits, chemical agents and mindless municipal workers, that dried egg didn't have a chance but sad to say either did the clock. A clouded opaque destroyed mess now is where there was once a 'crystal.'
