The Israel Museum teamed up with Swatch to create a limited edition watch that celebrates the Museum’s 50th anniversary. This is the first time that Swatch has created a watch for Israel, and only 1,000 were produced, making this a collector’s item. Fewer than 500 watches are still available.
The Israel Museum Swatch features a transparent face which displays the multi-colored gears inside. The Museum’s brightly-colored anniversary polka dots are scattered along the translucent band and the Museum’s 50th Anniversary logo appears on the top of the band. The Swatch is beautifully packaged in a white box decorated with the Museum’s anniversary polka dots and logo.
The polka dot motif was inspired by a pair of cufflinks that Tina Davis bought for her husband, James Snyder, Director of the Israel Museum. The design is based on a pair of Georg Jensen cufflinks that featured a confetti design created in 1965, the year the Museum opened. The polka dots were incorporated into the watch design, the Museum and the shop, and became a celebratory sign of the anniversary.
