Pre-Owned Ikepod Horizon in 18 karat Rose Gold Watch
While watches comprise just a small part of his oeuvre, designer Marc Newsom has had an outsize influence on the form (think Apple watch). Ikepod, his collaboration with entrepreneur Oliver Ike, began as early as 1994 and lasted until 2006. The wide range of watches introduced during this period featured both Newsom’s personal preferences for ultra rounded forms, large size, and innovations like lugless design and one-piece (monocoq) case construction that remain cutting edge today. This is a relatively late example of the Hemipode design in rose gold. The patterned dial reinforces the roundness of the object in a particular style that emphasizes graphics to a greater degree than other pieces in the collection. If you look at the forces driving today’s watch market, the only thing that approaches the power of brands is design. The Ikepod Horizon design refers “to the ‘event horizon’ in astrophysics, the edge of a black hole and the moment when gravity becomes infinite, when both time and space disappear.” We think Newsom’s reputation, and that of his watches, will only increase over time.
