Witherspoon 10th Anniversary Watch
Designer: Michael Graves
Limited Edition of 300
At the intersection of Witherspoon Street and Paul Robeson Place sits The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, New Jersey. Architect Michael Graves honors the project with the Witherspoon series of watches. The Witherspoon 10th Anniversary Watch commemorates its milestone anniversary while continuing to pay homage to its original inspiration. Like its original colored variations, the 10th Anniversary model is filled with subtle detail. These include matching copper color on the crown to the Michael Graves signature on the lens. The number “10” is imprinted on the underside of the lens to highlight the occasion.. The dial’s delicate perforations or dimples amplify the raised numbers and indices. This 10th Anniversary Edition is limited to only 300 numbered pieces. Each is numbered on the backside of the watch. They will not last long!
Michael Graves received his architectural training at the University of Cincinnati and at Harvard University.
