In this next movie in our series filmed with Marc Newson in his London studio he tells us about the watches he's designed, including the first ones that he built himself in the late 1980s. Update: this interview is featured in Dezeen Book of Interviews, which is on sale now for £12.
Flicking through a proof of his new book for publishers Taschen, Newson shows a 1:1 image of a model from 1986 that's as big as his fist, saying "I pre-dated the trend for large watches by about a decade."
Newson also talks about jewellery he's designed, the huge glass Atmos clocks powered by tiny changes in temperature (above) and the hourglass full of ball-bearings that was his last product for the Ikepod watch brand he founded (below).
Called Marc Newson – Works, the book comes out in September.
