The Bodoni Watch from M&Co in classic black was the brainchild of creator Tibor Kalman and M&co’s Bodoni watch features the classic Bodoni typeface designed by Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813) in late 18th-early 19th century, Italy.
Bodoni’s typeface is characterized by easily recognizable Romantic typeface, vertical stress, slight serif bracketing, a vertical tail of Q, and a small upper bowl of g to name a few.
Clearly a classic of its day, and even today, the Bodoni Watch from M&Co in classic black has clean lines that carefully teeter from light to dark and back. Bodoni is timeless.
Each hand-crafted timepiece is made of an IP black stainless steel ensuring 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 stainless steel 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. In collaboration with his wife Maira, the conceptually progressive firm initially created graphics, magazines and film titles, and books. Following the release of a record album cover for the rock band Talking Heads, M&Co gained major attention for “pushing the envelope” on conventions of design and typography, and went on to become a major influence on emerging designers.
Projectswatches and M&Co began their historic relationship back in 2005 both companies sharing their common love of design and the timepiece. M&Co with its love of design and the whimsy and Projects watches with its love of design and architecture. A perfect marriage.
The Bodoni Watch from M&Co in classic black is 33mm in diameter (1.30″) and 6.35mm high (1/4″) making this timeless classic perfect for any size wrist. Bodoni is complemented with a black leather stitched 18mm tapered band.
