After my second year of college at the University of Oregon, my mom got transferred to Germany. As my school year was coming to a close, she asked if I would like to come stay with her for the summer, and it didn’t take me long to accept.
I ended up living there for a year, and was able to visit several countries during that time. One of the most interesting places I got to go was Moscow. In school I had always been enamored with Russian Constructivism, and here I was surrounded by it. In several of the markets one could find posters, pins, and other items, but this watch really caught my eye. Politics aside, I loved the bold graphic branding of the piece, and to this day all it needs is a good winding to start ticking away.
Who knows if this piece is real, it doesn’t really matter, I love it because it reminds me of my time in Moscow with my mother.
