Witherspoon 10th Anniversary Watch - Limited Edition of 300. Only 35 Left!
Celebrating the milestone anniversary of the award-winning Witherspoon watch, the Witherspoon 10th Anniversary offers a black and copper version of this design classic. Subtle detailing abounds in this tribute to the late 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."

Witherspoon 10th Anniversary Watch
Designer: Michael Graves
Limited Edition of 300
At the intersection of Witherspoon Street and Paul Robeson Place sits The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, New Jersey. Architect Michael Graves honors the project with the Witherspoon series of watches. The Witherspoon 10th Anniversary Watch commemorates its milestone anniversary while continuing to pay homage to its original inspiration. Like its original colored variations, the 10th Anniversary model is filled with subtle detail. These include matching copper color on the crown to the Michael Graves signature on the lens. The number “10” is imprinted on the underside of the lens to highlight the occasion.. The dial's delicate perforations or dimples amplify the raised numbers and indices. This 10th Anniversary Edition is limited to only 300 numbered pieces. Each is numbered on the backside of the watch. They will not last long!
