Design: Michael Graves (2013) 2016

Michael Graves designed the SCALLOP ROSE GOLD WATCH in 2013 and it has been thoughtfully realized in 2016!

The SCALLOP Rose Gold Watch has taken more than three years to come to market, due to technical challenges that had to be overcome in order to achieve its original design intent. The Guilloche dial engraving technique has been found in fine jewelry and on Faberge eggs since the 17th century. It has been utilized here to express the full vision and richness of this quality-made timepiece. With its symmetrical rigor and shell-like geometry (a form favored in many artifacts designed by Michael Graves), the SCALLOP Rose Gold Watch is sure to become a highly sought after design icon.

Guilloche is the pattern of curved symmetrical lines on the dial (face) of the watch. The guilloche effect on the dial is created by first laying a fine film of the guilloche pattern over the dial of the watch. An acid wash is then painted over the voided areas without the guilloche pattern. These areas treated by the wash are etched away into a 0.1mm deep pattern. After this etching treatment the dial has a raised “guilloche pattern” with plain recessed areas below it. The Scallop rose gold dial is then colored utilizing an ionic electro-plating process.

Michael Graves

Michael Graves received his architectural training at the University of Cincinnati and at Harvard University. Among his many completed projects are the Portland Building, the Humana Building, the Clos Pegase Winery in the Napa Valley, and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels. Graves is the winner of fifteen Progressive Architecture Design Awards, nine American Institute of Architects National Honor Awards, and thirty-eight New Jersey Society of Architects, AIA Awards. Michael Graves was recently awarded the national medal of the arts. Here is a transcript of what President Clinton said at the ceremony: So it's little wonder that Michael Graves' work can be found from our shopping malls to our National Mall. From an award-winning office building to a tea kettle; to the creative scaffolding around the Washington Monument -- which, I might say, has enriched the lives of every person in Washington, D.C. -- (applause) - - and made those often stuck in what is now America's most crowded traffic patterned city have their time pass a little better, Michael Graves has created art that surrounds our lives.

Michael Graves is a rare individual who finds equal wonder in things both large and small. As one of our century's most important designers and architects, he has said he gets as much pleasure planning a large building as he does designing a spatula. (Laughter.)- THE PRESIDENT
He calls himself a great practitioner, but in some ways his challenge is more daunting than that of a physician. As Frank Lloyd Wright once said, "After all, the doctor can bury his mistake," -- (laughter) -- "but the architect can only advise his client to plant vines." (Laughter.) The only thing that grows and covers Michael Graves' work is our admiration, appreciation and respect." Read about Michael Graves here: Buildings and Projects 1990-1994
