Marionette Fob Watch ~ Explore ~

The Fob watch, designed by Seiko, was given as a gift to the people of Melbourne. Every hour, on the hour, a marionette display drops down from the bottom of the watch with Australian galahs, cockatoos and two minstrels performing Waltzing Matilda, under the watchful gaze of some koalas.

It is found in Melbourne Central a large shopping centre, office, and public transport hub in the city of Melbourne, Australia. The complex not only includes the Shopping Centre and Offices (which was refurbished in 2005 by architects Ashton Raggatt McDougall), but also the Melbourne Central Railway Station (a part of the City Loop underground railway and formerly called Museum).
