The talented folk over at Melbourne Watch Company are collaborating with the prestigious international design firm, Cox Architecture to develop a timepiece that’s distinct and reflective of the character and structure of Melbourne. This relationship formed over a collective interest in design and Melbourne as a city, with Melbourne Watch Company delivering a long line of watches inspired by the city and Cox Architecture designing some of Melbourne’s most iconic projects including the unique AAMI Park stadium.
The timepiece is currently in its initial development stage, with materials, fabrication and movement parameters still being tested. From the teaser images, we gathered that the timepiece would feature a sleek, minimal design and possibly be available in multiple colourways. Melbourne Watch Company has revealed that the watch will remain within the affordable premium envelope.
The Melbourne Watch Company x Cox Architecture watch will be released Q3 2017. In the meantime, Melbourne Watch Company offers a diverse range of handcrafted timepieces all on display at its inner-city showroom in Carlton, Melbourne.

Cox Architecture is also working on several projects of note, including the design for the new North Queensland Stadium.
