M&Co Bodoni Black 40mm
Designer: M&Co (Tibor Kalman)
“Waste Not a Moment” with the M&Co Bodoni Black 40mm, now in a larger case for the modern collector.
The Bodoni Watch from M&Co in classic black was the brainchild of creator Tibor Kalman. M&Co’s Bodoni watch features the iconic Bodoni typeface designed by Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813) in late 18th-early 19th century, Italy. Bodoni’s typeface is characterized by easily recognizable Romantic typeface, vertical stress, slight serif bracketing, a vertical tail of Q, and a small upper bowl of g to name a few. An instant classic, the Bodoni from M&Co in classic black has clean lines that carefully teeter from light to dark and back. Bodoni is timeless.
The late Tibor Kalman, founder of M&Co. began his legendary relationship with time in 1983. In the spirit of the motto imprinted on the backside of the watches – “Waste Not a Moment.” Tibor Kalman (1949-1999) founded the legendary, multidisciplinary design firm M&Co in 1979. In collaboration with his wife Maira, the conceptually progressive firm initially created graphics, magazines and film titles, and books. Following the release of a record album cover for the rock band Talking Heads, M&Co gained major attention for “pushing the envelope” on conventions of design and typography, and went on to become a major influence on emerging designers.
Projects Watches and M&Co began their historic relationship in 2005, with both companies sharing a common love of design and the timepiece. Explore the entire collection.
