From legendary designer Tibor Kalman comes the Date Watch. A study in minimalist design, the Date Watch remains every bit the icon it was on its original release.
Originally designed and produced in 1988, Projects resurrected the M&Co Date Watch on its 30th anniversary. The Date Watch is timeless (so to speak) with its white dial and discreet date window at the 12:00 position.
Each hand-crafted timepiece is made of black IP stainless steel. This ensures a finish that stays looking new and comes with a genuine top-stitched black leather band lined with a taupe glove leather finish and a matching black buckle
The late Tibor Kalman, founder of M&Co. began his legendary relationship with time in 1983. In the spirit of the motto imprinted on the backside of the watches – “Waste Not a Moment.” Tibor Kalman (1949-1999) founded the legendary, multidisciplinary design firm M&Co in 1979.
The conceptually progressive firm initially created graphics, magazines and film titles, and books.
M&Co gained major attention for “pushing the envelope” with the cover of The Talking Heads record album. With its conventions of design and typography, they went on to become a major influence on emerging designers.
