M&Co Bodoni BRASS Watch with BROWN Band 40mm
Designer: M&Co (Tibor Kalman)
Who says that what is old is new and what is new is old? The M&Co Bodoni Brass, now in a larger case for the modern collector.
M&Co Bodoni Brass Watch has long been recognized as an icon of simplistic and pure watch design. Originally designed in 1984, the classic all black version gave way to the brushed stainless steel version. And now, Projects introduces The M&Co Bodoni BRASS.Made to the same specifications of the classic black, the Bodoni Watch from M&Co is now available in classic black, stainless and now BRASS.
M&Co’s Bodoni watch features the classic Bodoni typeface designed by Giambattista Bodoni. Bodoni’s typeface is characterized by easily recognizable 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 M&Co Bodoni BRASS from M&Co has clean lines that carefully teeter from light to dark and back. Bodoni is timeless. Each timepiece is made of an IP brass color stainless steel ensuring a finish that stays looking new. Bodoni comes with a genuine top stitched black leather band lined with a taupe glove leather finish and a matching stainless steel buckle.
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.
