Projects Watch (Michael Graves) - Newark Ltd Edition - Black. Known throughout the world for his excellence in design, Michael Graves single handedly spearheaded several key movements, redirecting ideas regarding outstanding design towards more of a sense of accessibility and affordability. This, more humanistic approach, to architecture and product design led to a partnership in the 90s with companies like Projects, defining while doing so, America’s expectation that great design should be affordable design. Back in 1998, Graves created the Newark Museum Watch in honour of the famous museum in New Jersey, USA. Now, nearly 17 years later, Projects are proud to re-introduce this classic timepiece as a tribute and celebration of this great designer and his work. The Black Newark Ltd Edition is a magnificent achievement in watch design, featuring a bold white and black dial encased in a robust black stainless steel case (with matching black leather strap), clear presentation, and even a glow-button feature when pressed (at the 2:00 position) that lights the centre of the dial in a warm blue light for added visibility both day and night. The Michael Graves Tribute Watch is 40mm in diameter and a limited and numbered series. Only 150 will be produced of each of the two variations and each will be indicated on the timepiece as 001/150. “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 This piece of watchmaking history is an absolute must for impassioned collectors and enthusiasts alike.
