With Marc Newson's accomplishments in design, I'd have to assume he started designing out of the womb. Eight years before co-founding the Swiss watch company Ikepod, he created the "Pod" mystery dial watch (pictured) in 1986. Spinning disks with dot markers lined the time similar to the Pod Clock that he came up with a few years later. Likely his first watch project, the name has a deeper meaning now as we see how Marc's rich history of watch design grew from this very original Pod. Though Ikepod faced financial challenges recently, if the site is an indication, the company appears to be making a very welcome comeback.
