Marc Newson On Designing Watches

Despite the fact that almost everyone stopped wearing a watch more than a decade ago the introduction of the Apple Watch has awakened a conversation around horology. Here is the recently hired by Apple Marc Newson showing his portfolio. 

In this movie Marc Newson, in his London studio, tells us about the watches he's designed, including the first ones that he built himself in the late 1980s.
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 and the hourglass full of ball-bearings that was his last product for the Ikepod watch brand he founded.
