Designer: Michael Graves
The new Michael Graves – designed Paul Robeson Center for the Arts on historic Witherspoon Street is in the heart of Princeton, NJ. Graves describes his building as a “landmark project for Princeton that will make an enormous contribution to the cultural life of our community.”
The Witherspoon Street Art Council is bold in scale and colorful in spirit – just like Graves’ latest bold and colorful timepiece for PROJECTS – the “Witherspoon” Watch! The scale of the dial (face) is grand; just like the oculus window overlooking the pocket park in Princeton, and the colors are bright, bold and spirited….and now muted! The Eggplant Ladies Witherspoon is the latest color variation for the Witherspoon series. This watch is scaled toward the smaller wrist while all the proportions are bold and beautiful. Particularly noteworthy is the gray band which for the first time in the Witherspoon series represents a departure from the black color band of the other variations. Eggplant Ladies Witherspoon has those small details that Michael Graves has become known for. In this case, the eggplant threading and eggplant color matching crown (that which turns and changes the time).
Eggplant Ladies Witherspoon is perfect for dress, office or just to kick back with.
A smaller version of the unisex Witherspoon, this 30mm Ladies version has all the correct proportions for the smaller wrist.
The Eggplant Ladies Witherspoon measures 30mm in diameter (1.15″) and 8.45mm high (0.33″). Made of stainless steel, this specially sized ladies watch is complemented by a 16mm gray leather band (5/8″) with eggplant color stitching.
