Best of Watchville Remembering The Ikepod Megapode
In the present portion of Best Of Watchville, I’d prefer to cause you to notice Quill & Pad , whose Martin Green thinks about a watch that has become one of his #1 travel watches, the Ikepod Megapode. The Megapode is the biggest of the watches made by Ikepod and its generally complex to date. Intended for use by pilots, it has scales for making on-the-fly computations in a cockpit coordinated with a plan that is indisputably Marc Newson’s.
I’d bet that most perusers of HODINKEE know about Ikepod, the watch marque helped to establish by Newson in 1994 and which the London-based creator accordingly left to seek after work on the Apple Watch. From its initial days, Ikepod was justifiably viewed as a creator of significant plan objects, yet various watch sweethearts additionally took to them excitedly. I know a few watch gatherers who own Ikepods, and there are many fanatics of the watches among the HODINKEE staff, myself notwithstanding. All the more as of late, Ikepod has been restored without Newson. HODINKEE has covered them here and here since.
In this post from Quill & Pad, Green talks in a considerable amount of profundity about his 47mm Ikepod Megapode and how he went to claim it. It’s a fascinating and individual piece of composing, and one that I recommend looking at.
