Designer: Michael Graves
At the intersection of Witherspoon Street and Paul Robeson Place sits The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, New Jersey. Project architect Michael Graves honors the projects with the Witherspoon series of watches.
The Black & Tan Witherspoon Watch follows the previous Navy, Red, Orange, Blue, Mint, Green, Black and White versions but now in a bold CHARCOAL color with a natural color leather band. The watch evokes the rich tones of the building’s historic earth tones and bricks as well as its bold vistas of the town’s center. The Witherspoon Watch is filled with subtle details and large numbers with raised indexes in a subtle brown color.
What makes this Witherspoon unique over the others is its black stainless steel case and sun-ray dial. A departure from the earlier Witherspoon Watches.
Witherspoon BLACK & TAN measures 40mm in diameter (1.6″), is 8.85mm (0.35″) high, is made of a black IP brushed stainless steel, and is complemented by a 20mm natural or light brown color leather band (3/4″).
