50 years of television in Austria! This anniversary was duly celebrated with the issue of a beautiful silver / niobium coin that awakens old memories: the coin - and with it the face of the clock - shows the well-known "TESTBILD", which was seen for many years during breakdowns or during off-peak times .

At the time, television was still black and white, programs were repeatedly interrupted by this test image and the program didn't run all day, but only for a few hours - what a memory! 

In this watch, the niobium in the silver ring of the coin shines in an unbelievable wayusually intense violet - a dreamlike color combination! 

The strictly limited edition of only 100 pieces worldwide guarantees you exclusivity!


The special thing about this watch is the inner part of the coin, which is made of pure NIOB. This metal has the property that all the crystals on the surface move in a common direction under certain temperature and pressure conditions. This creates fantastic, but still natural color effects. This process was developed by Münze Österreich AG together with the Plansee works in Reutte / Tyrol. The outer ring of the coin is made of silver.
