Cuneiform ladies watch (British Museum exclusive)

    SKU: cmcj22920

    £60.00 Members' price *


    This quartz movement watch features cuneiform numerals from Mesopotamia on its face. The design was produced on the basis that sexagesimal counting was characteristic in ancient Mesopotamia, and it is due to that, thanks to the intervening Greek scholars, that our minutes and hours are divided into sixtieths and the circle measured in 360 degrees. In the watch face the minutes are counted with straightforward number symbols. The single upright counts both for 1 and for 60, as is central to the ancient system.
