Witherspoon NAVY (2014)
The Witherspoon NAVY Watch designed by Michael Graves
The Witherspoon NAVY Watch named for and in honor of The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, New Jersey. It’s project’s Honorary Chairman and designer Michael Graves describes it as a “landmark project for Princeton which will make an enormous contribution to the cultural life of our community.” Witherspoon is also the namesake of his latest timepiece for PROJECTS. Like his building,
The Witherspoon NAVY Watch follows the previous Red, Orange, Blue, Mint, Green, Black and White versions but now in a bold NAVY color with salmon color leather band. The watch evokes the rich tones of the building’s historic earth tones and bricks as well as its bold vistas of the town’s center. The Witherspoon NAVY Watch is filled with subtle detail; from the matching salmon color on the crown (that which turns and sets the time), to the matching salmon color of the second hand. There is no misreading the time here. The Witherspoon NAVY Watch has large numbers with raised indexes in a subtle silver color.
We love the Witherspoon Watch so much, that we have added three more colors and finishes. This Navy/Salmon, Brass Color and Stainless Steel color. Designed as a unisex, Witherspoon is also available in a smaller ladies size in white, aqua, red, purple and the new eggplant. As if this was not enough, we now have introduced Witherspoon in both a 12″ Wall Clock as well as an elegant stainless steel and red pocket watch.
Witherspoon NAVY measures 40mm in diameter (1.6″), is 8.85mm (0.35″) high, made of brushed stainless steel, and complemented by a 20mm salmon color leather band (3/4″).
