With this new model, Polish watch brand G. Gerlach recreates the legacy of classic, hand-wound railway watches manufactured by legendary watch makers like Hamilton, Elgin and Waltham. A typical railway watch fulfills the specific requirements of the railroad transportation such as high precision, outstanding quality, high visibility and heavy duty. Readability was a main factor. Dials and hands used luminous materials, hand applied. It created a thick, visible and robust layer that changed the appearance with time.
Before 2nd World War only two prototypes of Pm36 steam locomotive were built the same year. First of them (Pm36-1) had an aerodynamic cover. Aerodynamic cover was tested in a aerodynamic tunnel in Warsaw University of Technology. The second one (Pm36-2) had a standard look. Top speed of aerodynamic version was 20 km/h higher than the version without fairing, archiving astonishing for that time 140 km/h. The Pm36-1 gained a gold medal at the 1937 International Exposition of Art and Technology in Paris (Expo). It was a great success for a growing industry of independent Poland between World Wars.
Only one locomotive survive the World War II. It was Pm36-2. It was in service until 1966 then it was transferred to Warsaw Railway Museum. In 1995 it went through a major overhaul and returned to the service as a tourist attraction in Wolsztyn Museum.
The Pm36 watch is equipped with mechanical movement with hand winding (Seagull ST3620) with power reserve up to 56 hours.
