[blockquote style=”” align=”right” author=”Michael Graves Images of a Grand Tour, by Brian Ambroziak”]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.”[/blockquote]

Design: Michael Graves
The Grand Tour Watch Dual Time was architect and designer Michael Graves’ first watch for Projects. Grand Tour is filled with great details such as the numeral “1” representing one o’clock in the first or top watch and the number “2” representing 2 o’clock in the bottom watch.
