Launched in 1994, Ikepod watches are the realization of one of the most famous and influential designers of the past 50 years—Marc Newson. Ikepod watches are recognized for their round shape and use of high-end materials. Originally designed by Australian industrial designer back in 1998, the Hemipode chronograph ref. HDR 77 here offered carries Ikepod’s distinctive circular, rounded case and muted bezel surrounding four matching-color subdials at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock with black markings. This particular reference boasts a monocoque construction in 18K pink gold, housing an ETA 7750 calibre movement that can be admired through an off-center window opening on the case back, accompanied with Newson’s own engraved signature and serial number #008. Completing the look is a smooth black rubber strap, a special leather carrying case and warranty. Mark Newson’s stellar design career which includes the iconic “Lockheed Lounge Chair” and his close involvement in the design of the Apple Watch after his departure from IKEPOD in 2008 have ensured that his watch designs for IKEPOD are now becoming ever more appreciated as classics by art and design collectors who recognize Newson’s importance and pervading influence upon many aspects of contemporary style.
