This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, a monumental piece of architecture designed by renowned American architect, Frank Llyod Wright. In celebrating this milestone, Bulova pays tribute to the iconic architecture with a limited-edition timepiece.
Presented in a hexagonal gold-tone stainless steel case with slightly rounded edges, framing a circular dial design that captures the architectural icon’s essence. Starring a vibrant and geometric peacock pattern that can be found in the hotel’s mural and carpetings, it also echoes the Mayan and pre-Columbian Mesoamerican design cues that are prominent in the building.
The watch is equipped with the Miyota quartz movement and is capable of withstanding 30 meters underwater. Meanwhile, the caseback features an embossed design depicting the hotel’s façade. Completing the timepiece is a smooth blue leather strap with tonal topstitching, which comes with hot stamped details that echoes the pattern dial.
With only 1,000 pieces made, the Frank Lloyd Wright limited-edition timepiece retails at $495 USD at Bulova’s official website.
