Designer: Michael Graves
Witherspoon Ladies and Unisex. In the heart of Princeton New Jersey, the renovations on Witherspoon Street have become The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts. The project’s Honorary Chairman and designer Michael Graves describes it as a “landmark project for Princeton which will make an enormous contribution to the cultural life of our community.”
Witherspoon is also the namesake of his latest timepiece for PROJECTS. Like his building, The Witherspoon Watch is bold in its use of color and scale. The watch evokes the rich tones of the building’s blue and rust color bricks as well as its bold vistas of the town’s center.
The Red Witherspoon Watch is filled with subtle detail; from the matching red color on the crown (that which turns and sets the time), to the matching red stitching on the leather band. There is no misreading the time here. The Witherspoon Watch has large numbers with raised indexes. We love the Witherspoon Watch so much, that we now have it available in a smaller ladies size (even though this one is unisex), and in 2012 we introduced the Witherspoon Clock. Stay tuned because in 2013, we introduce the Red Witherspoon Pocket Watch…
Witherspoon measures 40mm in diameter (1.6″), is 8.85mm (0.35″) high, made of stainless steel, and complemented by a 20mm leather band (3/4″) with colored stitching.
