April Showers Watch

This watch, with gold-tone stainless steel case and brown leather strap, was adapted from the ‘April Showers’ drawing, developed by Wright for Liberty magazine in 1927. The design is an abstraction of spring rain, so it is appropriate that Wright used a 45-degree grid of squares overlapped by circles suggesting ripples in a rain puddle.
