Grand Tour Dual-Time Orange
The Grand Tour is the first for Architect Michael Graves. In 1960, before his architecture and product design had made him a household name, Michael Graves set out on a journey once considered essential for a young architect: a Grand Tour of the great monuments of Europe. As a recipient of the prestigious Prix de Rome, Graves traveled through Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, England, Germany, and France, studying and recording the masterworks of architecture.
The Grand Tour for Projects with its dual time-zone face is designed to keep the international traveler on time no matter where in the world one is traveling whether it’s for business or for the pleasure of discovering the world’s great architectural treasures.
This watch features a white dial and a burnt orange band. Grand Tour is also available in black and shiitake.

Having received the American Prize for Architecture, the National Medal of Arts and the Driehaus Architecture Prize, Graves has been recognized as a major influence on major architectural movements including New urbanism, New Classicism and Postmodernism as well as being described as “one of the most prominent and prolific American architects of the latter 20th century” by the New York Times.
