I tried all the menu clock applications currently available. I chose to purchase Meridian soon after launching it. Meridian is a great application and it's UI is very pleasing on the eye. In addition to a clock of which additional clocks can be created say for different time zones, Meridian also has user created Stopwatches, Timers and Alarms, so all time related tools are catered for in one application. Notifications and alarms can be implemented via iTunes which is a great bonus. Clocks can be Menu resident or Placed on the desktop like Widgets, and they are rendered wonderfully. Meridian is a great application, buy it and you won't be disappointed.
