Adolf Modro Adolf Modro was born in 1840. As a 20 year-old apprentice he lived at Miodowa Street, Warsaw in 1860. By 1870 he was working as a salesman in the Fryderyk Wege watch shop. In 1874 he started his own workshop at 72, Marszalkowska Street in Warsaw, where he stayed until after 1914. Apart from doing repairs, he sold watches from the leading brands such as Patek Philippe, Audemars, Mermod, Borel, Tissot etc. In advertisements dating from 1904 and 1907 he recommended “high precision watches of his own make”.
