Designer: Michael Graves Design
The Japanese word for window, Mado 窓, is a fitting name for a watch that allows the wearer to see something that was previously unsee-able. The Mado Watch opens a portal in which time is seen in a new light.
The “square peg in a round hole” idiom is a fitting description for the award-winning Mado watch because it artfully communicates the individuality that we all yearn to express. When seen on a wrist, the age old geometric relationship between circle and square transforms into a plane of coexistence. The daily act of telling time becomes immediate, focused, and magnified. This is achieved by wedging the square black dial, with its unique engraving pattern, into the circular brushed stainless steel bezel. This watch creates a perfectly proportioned window through which time is viewed. The watch dial is punctuated by high-contrast, stamped numerals (taken from an original font designed by the late Michael Graves) that appear to hover within the crystal lens.
The Mado Watch is a unisex 40mm diameter size case. It is made of brushed stainless steel and is complemented with a black silicone band with stainless steel buckle.
Mado is the proud winner of the 2017 GOOD DESIGN AWARD.
