On Fort Myers Beach, there was an iconic clock that has appeared in countless pictures taken by locals and tourists alike.

Some say it is the most southern point of Ft Myers Beach. A few years back, there was talk of removing the clock but the community did not want the iconic clock to go away. In 2020, Mayor Ray Murphy said the clock is going to stay permanently. And recently when the clock broke, the community rushed in to help repair the clock. Now with Hurricane Ian passing over the beach, that iconic clock has been completely destroyed.

Now there is a push to replace the Fort Myers Beach clock. Verdin Bells and Clocks in a statement said that they are looking forward to working with the community and replacing the iconic clock and restoring the spirit that the clock brought to Ft Myers Beach.
