Richard Meier for Pierre Junod

Swiss watch brand Pierre Junod has launched a new design by architect Richard Meier.

The watch has a sapphire crystal, 316 L stainless steel case and an ETA Swiss quartz movement. The 12 squares on the face and the hands are visible in the dark.

    not to be snarky (since we’re all going to the kinder, gentler dezeen), but if this didn’t have richard meier’s name on it, would we be talking about it at all? what’s unique about this? where is the actual merit beyond the signature?

    i’m actually pretty indifferent to the whole ‘cult of personality’ thing going on in design these days, but the work still has to be worthy. for me, this doesn’t quite measure up.

    Well I do think this watch is cool. Quite subtle yet clean & logical details.
    I certainly would want to own one…

    Meier wouldn’t put a signature on one of his buildings would he?

    I guess he knows it’s not that original.
