M&Co Scratch Watch
Designer: M&Co (Tibor Kalman)
“Waste Not a Moment” with the M&Co Scratch Watch.
As with all M&Co Watches, whimsy plays a huge part. While the Bodoni Watch is a staid classic with its Bodoni font, the Scratch Watch from M&Co embraces the whimsy! Tibor Kalman plays upon handwritten numbers or “scratch” with this design.
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. Check out this cool picture of the M&Co Askew on the side of a building in the Lower East Side of New York.
Projects Watches and M&Co began their historic relationship in 2005, with both companies sharing a common love of design and the timepiece.
Whether you choose The Scratch Watch from M&Co or Bodoni, the 10-one-4 (in the MoMA Design Collection), the Onomatopoeia, Askew, or the beloved “5”, all of the M&Co Collection from Projects will bring a smile to your face. And if this is your first M&Co Watch, wear it well….and we will see you back for the others!
