Corneille Art Watch “Hand-painted”
This is where the worlds of art and wristwatches come together…
Dutch painter Corneille does not require any introduction. As a founding member of the Cobra movement, he has had a profound impact on contemporary art and has earned a very prominent position in the public conscience.
His creations beyond paintings and sculptures perhaps do require some introduction. Here we have an example of a project run by Corneille in cooperation with Jaski Art Gallery: a book, print, and watch combination.
These beautiful sets include high-resolution images of important works, as well as a silkscreen of one of Corneille’s paintings. This silkscreen can be torn out, but it is still in place in this example.
And then there is the watch. A made-to-order watch in 14k yellow gold, based on a Swiss ETA movement. But that is all of secondary importance. What matters is the dial. Hand-painted by the master himself. And for good measure, he decorated the rotor on the movement as well.
A total of 25 of these watches were made in yellow gold. Versions in other materials also exist. We have three(!): numbers 8, 9, and 14 out of 25.
Just imagine wearing an actual painting by Corneille on your wrist. Besides having an original Dutch master above your bed, it really does not get much better…does it?
