- the founder of modern nursing
In 1854 she volunteered for service in the Crinmean War. Through her tireless efforts, particularly in sanitary measures, she reduced the mortality rate of the sick and wounded from infectious diseases.
Florence Nightingale became a national heroine and was known as 'The Lady with the Lamp' or 'The Angel of the Crimea'. In recognition of her service to her country, Queen Victoria awarded Florence Nightingale The Royal Red Cross in 1883.
To commemorate the work of Florence Nightingale, the pioneer of modern nursing, we have designed a unique watch, with its characteristic pulsation counter dial and sophisticated hygienic strapping, in her name.
