The Mengenlehreuhr (German for "Set Theory Clock") or Berlin-Uhr ("Berlin Clock") is the first public clock in the world that tells the time by means of illuminated, coloured fields, for which it entered the Guinness Book of Records upon its installation on 17 June 1975. Commissioned by the Senate of Berlin and designed by Dieter Binninger, the original full-sized Mengenlehreuhr was originally located at the Kurfürstendamm on the corner with Uhlandstraße. After the Senate decommissioned it in 1995, the clock was relocated to a site in Budapester Straße in front of Europa-Center, where it stands today.

Mengenlehreuhr was officially activated on June 17, 1975, but try as I might, I can't find the time of day when it was first turned on. I'm hoping that someone here might be able to help me find a source. I had hoped that Guiness World Records would have included the time of day as well, but no luck.

Can anyone in the ATS community help point me in the right direction?

Read everything i could find in german, but nowhere a hint at which exact time it was turned on first.
I am sorry.

Why would the time of day when it was first turned on matter?

Here is a video (in german) showing the installation (00:25-00:58): www.youtube.com...

The time and date of activation is important for a project I'm working on.

So far, that's the closest time I've gotten for when it was first turned on.

Thank you!

Halb hinter dem Arsch des Affen, Viertel zu seinen Bällen.
And then, there's this.
