Is that a Jewish watch in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?
Russian watch company Molnija has been producing pocket watches for nearly 60 years. Among its vast range is a Jewish watch that on one side features a Star of David and on the other has a Menorah.
Since 1947, the company based in Chelyabinsk, which is the capital of the Southern Ural in Russia has been churning out one of the most collectible ranges of pocket watches in the world.
Still largely handmade, the Molnija range features themes for all events and all occasions. The Jewish pocket watch even goes backwards in honour of its Jewish roots and use of Hebrew characters on display. Ideal for those who know the real meaning of JMT (Jewish meantime).
Written just below the Star of David is the hebrew text shalom, while the menorah side has little Star of David around it.
These pocket watches can be bought online through a large number of dealers as well as being sold on eBay.
Expect to pay around £25 to £30.
