In the late 1930s, architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller designed the Aarhus City Hall, in Aarhus, Denmark, which was inaugurated in 1941. The original design of the building did not include a clock tower—Jacobsen felt that such towers had no real function—which led to a public outcry. The two architects capitulated and added a 197-foot tower, featuring an elegant Roman Clock, which this watch is based on. Arne Jacobsen’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.
Features of the Arne Jacobsen Roman Watch include:
- Solid stainless steel case.
- Concave dial.
- Navy blue calf-skin leather strap, 16mm, with stainless steel buckle.
- 34mm case.
- Hardened double convex M2 glass.
- Water-resistant to 3 ATMs.
