The graceful rosette design on the face of this unique ladies’ watch is a rendering of the elegant bronze flowers set around the base of the flagpole outside the magnificent National Archives Building. With its high-precision Japanese quartz movement, eye-catching red stitched-leather watch strap and enduring design, this refined timepiece pays a fitting tribute to the temple of our history.
The bronze flower detail is also featured in our exclusive Flag Pole Detail Silk Scarf.
In 1930, New York Architect John Russell Pope was selected to design the National Archives Building. Pope's neoclassical design included both the practical and symbolic aspects of housing the nation's records. He proposed a monumental structure with highly decorative architectural features, giant Corinthian columns, 40-foot bronze doors, and inscriptions representing the building's historical importance. Pope also designed the National Gallery and the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.
