Designer: M&Co (Tibor Kalman)
“Waste Not a Moment” with the M&Co Ichi.
Ichi, the number one in Japanese, is a limited re-issue, brought back from the M&Co archives. As with all the M&Co Watches, ICHI embraces a spirit of whimsy and plays upon the pronunciation of the Japanese representation for the numbers. Meant to amuse and bring a smile to your face, the Ichi Watch does this while also allowing you to wear a piece of high-design.
The Ichi Watch was first released in 1987 for a short time. Its re-release will only be for a short time so if you are an M&Co collector, this is a must for your collection.
The late Tibor Kalman, founder of M&Co. began his legendary relationship with time in 1983. In the spirit of the motto imprinted on the backside of the watches – “Waste Not a Moment.” Tibor Kalman (1949-1999) founded the legendary, multidisciplinary design firm M&Co in 1979. In collaboration with his wife Maira, the conceptually progressive firm initially created graphics, magazines and film titles, and books. Following the release of a record album cover for the rock band Talking Heads, M&Co gained major attention for “pushing the envelope” on conventions of design and typography, and went on to become a major influence on emerging designers.
