Directors notes
In 1969 Andrew Grima was commissioned by Omega to create a collection of watches called ‘About Time’. Consisting of 85 pieces it included wristwatches, ring watches and pendant watches, all in Grima’s avant-garde architectural style. Each face was viewed though a crystal made from a gemstone rather than glass. Described by Grima as "the greatest challenge of my career", the collection took 64 craftspeople a year to complete and was launched at the Goldsmith’s Hall, London on the 5th May, 1970.
