Newark Tribute 40mm Watch - #90 out of 150 made
Few are credited with spearheading a single design movement; Michael Graves, well known throughout the world for design excellence, led several.
In the 1980s, Graves redirected the architectural conversation away from abstract modernism toward a more humanistic approach to architecture and product design and in the 90s his partnership with companies like Projects defined America’s expectation that great design should be affordable design.
In 1998, as one of the 17 original architects of Projects’ Building Timepieces Collection, Graves designed theNewark Museum Watch in honor of the Museum of the same name.
The Michael Graves Tribute Watch is in an all black IP stainless steel case, black leather band with black and red hands. The back case of each watch matches the finish and texture of the case itself. The Tribute Watch has an EL movement and glow-button feature that when pressed (at the 2:00 position), alights the center in warm blue light for ease of reading day or night!
The Michael Graves Tribute Watch is 40mm in diameter and a limited and numbered series. Only 150 will be produced and each will be indicated on the timepiece as 001/150. This one is number 90.
“In the Newark Museum Watch, there is a feeling of depth that one doesn’t usually associate with timepieces, between the rings emphasizing the face of the crystal, and the actual watch face beyond the “glow” feature, with its blue colored light which increases the feeling of depth.” – Michael Graves
