In 1956, the internationally acclaimed Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen created the wall clock City Hall for Rødovre City Hall. Along with the Roman wall clock for Aarhus City Hall and Banker’s wall clock for the national bank of Denmark, these clocks represent a substantial contribution to three decades of Modernist Design history. As with the wall clocks, the dial and the front part of the watch case are produced as a single piece. Accordingly, the time graduations are imprinted directly on the dial. The wrist watch also has the same concave shape as the wall clocks. Similarly, the watch movement is located at the rear, and this part serves not only to retain the movement but also partly to retain the strap. The black, waxed calf leather strap is held in place using a system specially developed by Rosendahl for the collection.
