Onomatopoeia

4.5
Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
306 Reviews
Sale price$149.00

A game of word association may have been the inspiration behind the conceptual Onomatopoeia design from Tibor Kalman. For this symbolic timepiece, the numbers 3, 5, 9 and 12 are replaced with iconography such as a tree, five fingers, a cat with nine lives and a dozen eggs. Set in an ultra-lightweight case and custom minimalist leather band for all-day wearability, Onomatopoeia suggests not only the look and sound of numbers, but the idea behind them as well.

    Crazy elegance in uncertainties

    Awesome product, it was delivered in 26 days to Europe. It has a quality leather straps with qiuck lock, but unfortunately the strap size just too big for 17 cm wrist circumference.

    Good watch, but...

    This watch is a bit of me. Always been a fan of the macabre and I do love it. The only "issue" I have (which is a very strong way of putting it) is that I wish the heart in the middle, which does the seconds, was bigger. Maybe beyond the skeleton? Othe than that, it is brilliant.

    Reçue dans les temps avec frais de tva à payer en plus à la douane ( mais c’est normal ) .

    Magnifique montre, très très originale. J’ai acheté le bracelet métallique en plus et c’est super joli

    Reveal green

    I love my Reveal Green watch. People notice it and ask about it. I can only read the time with my glasses on but that is OK. My only wish concern is the thin band.

About the Creator

Tibor Kalman

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.”
