Michael Graves Syzygy Watch
Contemporary Indigo Blue Classic Watch
Syzygy (pronounced /ˈsɪ.zɨ.dʒi/)
Syzygy named for the scientific term for astrological alignment, celebrates the unity of color, form and function in a sophisticated mono-chromatic presentation. Syzygy’s Indigo blue color is made of plated stainless steel that will not wear off. Syzygy features ellipsoidal hands (another Graves Signature form), a bright orange sweeping second hand, and easy to see white hour index marks. The entire composition is capped off by an oversized spherical knob.
Syzygy is one of our staff favorites. It is uniquely modern and contemporary, yet draws from the classics with white line indexes and punctuated by the number 12 atop. While the devil is in the details, there is nothing devilish about Syzygy. The center of the second hand is a yellow color with a blue second hand that matches both the face and case of the watch and at the end of the second hand that perfect touch of yellow again!
Syzygy also has a matching blue band that can be changed depending upon the mood. There are two bars behind the case of the watch that allow the band to slip through for ease of changing. And it can be changed to a black leather band or a black kevlar band OR if you feel the urge even an orange!
Syzygy measures 36mm in diameter (1.40″) and 8.60mm high (0.34″). It is made of IP plated stainless steel and is complemented by an 18mm one-piece matching color leather band.
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."
