Le Defenseur du Temps is an elaborate clock found in the passageway known as the Quartier de l'Horloge in Paris, nearby the Centre Georges Pompidou. The clock shows a soldier battling a dragon and other mythical animals. To see the legacy of late-1970's Paris architecture, take a stroll through the uninspired, concrete-heavy Quartier de l'Horloge-- if only to see the odd clock.
