Legend has it that Sheikh Ahmed of Qatar gave a gift of a huge clock to Sheikh Rashid. Because of its vast size, Sheikh Rashid had no idea what to do with it. He sought counsel from the designer of his palace, Otto Bulart. He was asked to construct a monument based on the clock at the roundabout entrance into Dubai. However, his costs were too high and instead Ziki Homsi along with local builders constructed the structure.

As the tale continues, Sheikh Rashid hired Ziki Homsi and some 30 men. They mixed cement, built the tower and placed the clock at the top. It took only 10 months to complete.
