The reverse shows delicate beautiful clock faces of modern and antique watches. In the center a clock face protrudes in high relief.
A brief annotation
The coin illustrates the complex concept of time. It is warped in shape with a clockface protruding from the center, just as time can be theoretically bent and the concept of time is different to each person. Additionally the coin box acts as a time capsule in which personal items and memories of a special time can be stored for the future.
