The watch is one of the personal belongings of Karol Wojtyła, which found its place in the Wadowice museum collection, thanks to the Nazarene Sister, Magdalena Strzelecka CSFN, who was the first curator to take care of the collections.
The round watch, marked with the brand “Hausmann”, with a golden case and white dial, indicated the time and day of the month. The museum collection includes a postcard with a photograph of John Paul II, on whose hands you can see this watch.
It also evokes the memory of another clock, which was very important in the life of Karol Wojtyła. The windows of Wojtyła’s Wadowice apartment faced the southern wall of the Basilica of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, on which a sundial with the inscription—"Time escapes, eternity is waiting"—has been placed. To this day, it may be seen when walking along the street next to the church or looking from the museum window. After the death of John Paul II, the date of 2 April 2005 was written on the clock face.
