A man crossed over Westminster Bridge one morning between eight and nine o clock by the tower clock (often mistakenly called Big Ben, which is the name of the large bell only, but this by the way). On his return between four and five o clock he noticed that the hands were exactly reversed. What were the exact times that he made the two crossings?

    The times were 8 hours 23+71/143 minutes, and 4 hours 41 +137/143  minutes. We  are always allowed to assume that these fractional times can be indicated in clock puzzles.
