Similar to his other designs in this collection, designer Michael Graves’ Witherspoon Navy holds true to the subtle composition notes of its predecessors, while paying homage to the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts at the intersection of Witherspoon St. and Paul Robeson Pl. The orange and blue color scheme alludes to the historic brass and brick building—and a not-so subtle nod to Princeton University where Graves taught for 40+ years. From the matching orange of the crown and second hand, to the navy face featuring large numbers with raised indexes in a silver color, every design note is carefully chosen to design one another for this nod to art and architecture.
