Black & Tan Witherspoon (2008) 2016 The Black & Tan Witherspoon Watch designed by Michael Graves The Black & Tan Witherspoon Watch named for and in honor of The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, New Jersey. It’s 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 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 detail. There is no misreading the time here. The Witherspoon Watch has 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. We love this Witherspoon Watch version so much, that our Projects Team members have refused to take it off! Designed as a unisex, Witherspoon is also available in a smaller ladies size in white, red, purple and the new eggplant. Black & Tan Witherspoon measures 40mm in diameter (1.6"), is 8.85mm (0.35") high, made of a black IP brushed stainless steel, and complemented by a 20mm natural or light brown color leather band (3/4").
