Metropolitan Museum of Art red watch

Today's watch is a commemorative item for one of the largest art galleries in the world.

The watch was made for the Metropolitan  Museum of Art in New York City. The museum holds over 2 million pieces of art spanning many periods from ancient Egypt to the modern era.

The watch comes from 1994 which doesn't appear to be a particular milestone (as the museum was founded in 1870 and opened in 1872). I guess that this means the watch was a souvenir item for visitors.

The face is in dark red and has a logo of the letter M surrounded by all of the drawing marks which determine the features of the letter. The back also has this logo and the copyright, as well as stating it uses a Japanese quartz movement. The overall design is similar to the Swatch watches, especially the shape of the case and the strap style.

It is a 3 hand dial design with black hands which for in with the 2 colour design.
