Pocket watch of the brand “Omega” of Tanasije Čolović

Severely wounded on the Thessaloniki front, Tanasije Čolović from Kraljevo gave his son Žarko a pocket watch “Omega” and six gold coins of Napoleon at the hospital in the naval base Sidi Abdallah near Bizerte (Bizerte, Tunisia). With this money, Žarko Čolović erected a marble monument to his father in the cemetery in Bizerte in 1916, whose photograph is also kept in the Historical Collection of the National Museum Kraljevo.
