Michael Graves’ Vix.N Watch
Vix.N is a sexy and contemporary watch with a concave dial.
The Michael Graves Vix.N Watch is simple and elegant, Vix.N abstracts Roman numeral hour marks to their barest essentials and then delivers them in bright orange on a crisp white face. The stainless steel bezel provides a stylish frame for the slim, modern hands while the mint-green second hand delivers another unexpected punch of color.
If you look closely, you will see that the Michael Graves’ Vix.N Watch has a concave dial bringing the detail of his architectural style into the “time”.
Vix.N has a sexy and contemporary flair with its centered focus nadir accentuating the balance and design. Just the right amount of elegance and dial detail that one comes to expect from Michael Graves.
Can you find a Michael Graves detail in Vix.N? Answer: The modern 1, 5, and 10 in Roman numerals are the only digits that are singular in a 12 hour Roman numeral watch!
Vix.N measures 36mm in diameter (1.4”) and 8.6mm high (0.34”) and comes with a black leather band featuring a subtly embossed basket-weave pattern.
About 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:
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
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.
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."
