Stopwatch in background is placed behind small magnifying lens; left side of the watch is within the lens so that the face is magnified; as viewer moves head, more or less of the face is magnified; because image is on a thin piece of film with a tendency to curl, it's difficult to properly view entire image; red image; unusual in that the hologram is divided into 3 panels; the left and right panels show the same image; the middle panel is clear and shows nothing; the watch face in the right panel mistakenly appears twice.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
