Grand Tour Dual Time Blue

Design: Michael Graves

The Grand Tour Dual Time Blue Watch is our newest in our line of 2 time zone watches.  The Grand Tour was the only dual time zone watch designed by Architect Michael Graves.  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.  This way you can set your watch to not only the correct design choice, but, choose which is your number 1 or 2 favorite zone….home or away!

Why Grand Tour?  It is reminiscent of Graves’s years of studying in Rome when we perfected his painting and architecture. In essence, it was his grand tour of his second home….Italy.

His Grand Tour watch for PROJECTS with its dual time-zone face is designed to keep the international traveler on time no matter where in the world one is traveling whether it’s for business or for the pleasure of discovering the world’s great architectural treasures.

The Grand Tour Dual Time Blue is one of three variations available.  The others are: a white dial, blue print and a burnt orange band as well as a black dial with blue print and a black leather band.

Grand Tour measures 25.5mm W x 47.8mm H (1″ x 1.88″) and is 8.45mm high (0.33″). It is made of stainless steel, complimented by a 18mm leather band (0.70”) with coordinating stitching, and is water-resistant.

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." Read about Michael Graves here: Buildings and Projects 1990-1994
