Watch - 'Calder #1' Textile

Calder #1 Textile Watch

Add a pop of 20th-century colour – and a bit of The Met collection – to your wrist with this bold, bright watch design.

The spirited mid-century textile pattern shown on our watch celebrates Calder #1, which Alexander Calder (1898-1976) created in 1949. Illustrating the artist’s interest in motion, energy and perception, it features floating discs and dynamic lines in bold primary colours. This rayon-fiberglass fabric in The Met collection was manufactured by the New York-based design studio Laverne Originals as part of the company’s Contempora series of textiles and wall coverings.
