History of Polish Jews Museum Watch


History of Polish Jews Museum Watch

Design: Rainer Mahlamäki. Pateo (Latin for open passage).

History of Polish Museum Watch is 31mm square (1.2″) and 8.00mm high (0.32″) in size making it perfect for both men and women and comes in two versions.

The watch is modeled after The History of the Polish Jews Museum opened in Poland and designed by Rainer Mahlamäki. Looking carefully you will notice a vignette of the Museum on the dial.

The Museum will have a permanent exhibition space under the main hall. Special built-in milieus will present the different aspects of the history of the Polish Jews. The design vignette on the watch dial is a two-dimensional representation of the most notable architectural element found in the main hall of the museum; a pure and silent space which literally carves a passage for visitors to discover the museum and the history therein.

There are two models: Pateo with brushed finish on the dial and engraved vignette, which matches the brushed Stainless steel case and strap. And, Pateo with brushed finish on the dial with black vignette and signature to match the leather strap.

History of Polish Jews Museum Watch is out of production in 2013.
