Description

Among all the attractions of New Jersey, one of the most memorable and recognizable is the giant Colgate watch. The octagonal model in downtown Jersey City appeared quite a long time ago — back in 1924. These chimes are located on the banks of the Hudson River, in front of Manhattan. The size of the attraction is impressive — 50 feet in diameter, the arrows are 25 and 20 feet long. This is one of the biggest watches in the world. The frame is made of structural steel; a special stainless alloy was used for the shooters. There is an impressive 20-foot Colgate sign next to the landmark so that there is no doubt about which company owns the watch. By the way, they have long been the hallmark of Jersey City. The watch looks most spectacular in the evening when the lights turn on. To make Colgate perfectly visible from afar, 1600 light bulbs are used! You can see them 20 miles from the city's coastline. It is interesting that the watch is made in the shape of an octagon for a reason. This is what this firm's soap looked like. Initially, Colgate produced only scented soaps, candles and starch. A little later, the production of perfumes, essences and toothpaste was started.
