Bodoni Black | 40mm
The M&Co Bodoni watch from designer Tibor Kalman is a watch in its most classic form. “Waste Not a Moment” is the guiding phrase behind M&Co’s collection of watches, and with Bodoni, there is nothing unnecessary about it. Originated in 1984, this timepiece features the iconic Bodoni typeface, characterized by its vertical stress, slight serif bracketing a vertical tail of Q and small upper bowl of g to name just a few. All set atop a minimalist white interface within a black exterior frame, this watch is truly timeless.
About the Creator
Founder of the New York-based graphic and product design consultancy M&Co, Tibor Kalman helped change the way people see graphic design. According to the American Institute of Graphic Arts, Kalman was one of the few graphic designers whose accomplishments were legendary within the field and widely known outside, as well. Kalman’s work sought to challenge mundane design thinking and aspired to create unpredictable work.
In addition to his work at M&Co, he also worked as creative director for Interview magazine and as the editor-in-chief of Colors magazine—for which his unique perspective of bold graphic design, typography and juxtaposition of photographs and doctored images has been celebrated throughout the years. Kalman’s unique style and individualistic point-of-view eventually led him to receive the 1999 AIGA medal, recognizing him as the “design profession’s moral compass and its most fervent provocateur.”
