The Mac OS Watch

When I was visiting Memphis last week, Stephen Hackett showed me his Mac OS watch.

This watch showcases Apple’s colorful, chunky design it used in print and some interface elements at the time, including the canned Gizmo theme. The bright colors are offset by a gray band with Mac OS text running its full length.

I have an Apple watch of my own. It’s a “Think Different” model that runs counterclockwise. Oh, ’90s Apple. Such a strange company.
