The 80th Anniversary, Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation by Bulova

"Give me the luxuries of life and I will willingly do without the necessities."

I became somewhat obsessed by the life, works and words of Frank Lloyd Wright in my late 20s while working in Finland. That has continued on to this very day as in the midst of re-designing our Adult Education center at NSCAP this past month, I have frequently referred back to Mr. Lloyd Wright's Larkin Building -

There have been a lot of attempts to create jewelry, home furnishings and other sundry items to commemorate his work, but many have been disappointing. But judging from this offering from Bulova, it appears that there is finally something that lives up to the work of the man who inspired it!

Now as luxuries go, this one is affordable (at least by watch collecting standards) and is offered at $475 US.
