Event description

Description

This presentation, structured as a discussion between Mat Craddock and Lee Yuen-Rapati will focus on the typography of contemporary watches which revive distinct vintage or antiquarian styles. While the qualities of watch typography can be difficult to discuss objectively, revival designs provide examples of efforts to renew or reintroduce older styles to a newer audience. By dissecting the similarities and differences from original to revival, key insights can be gained such as a demonstration of attention to detail, or a designer's intentions. The presentation will focus on material from Mr. Yuen-Rapati's recent Master's dissertation from the University of Reading. Craddock and Yuen-Rapati will dissect several examples of revival watch typography as well as provide a brief overview of typographic details in horology.
