Watches & Pencils #10 - Art for Watch LoversArt and WatchesAfter two longer and intense episodes about sandwich dials and Frankenreplica watches I'd like to kick-off in 2016 using a shorter episode and much more visual density. Ever since i like replica watches and art I figured it would be nice to adopt yourself an art gallery tour and discuss several older (Dutch) artpieces that happen to be watch related in some manner. Over the tour we will find among the earliest lollipop hands That i have ever spotted and also a fancy pancy watch stand that could blow away most of regular stands nowadays. So, follow me and Don't touch anything!Pocketreplica watchesDespite of my intense research for art with (wrist)replica watches it turned out quite difficult to locate a few interesting ones (not the normal portraits) inside targeted interval: pre-WWII. Logical, because the earliest mass-produced wristreplica watches date from around 1900 or newer thereby do not show up in many artworks from that period period or earlier. As a result I've decided to discuss a fine (art) collection of pocketwatch related stuff, the ancestors with the modern wrist watch. A famous example for this topic is of course the melted pocketwatch painting by Salvador Dali (The Persistence of Memory, 1931), often connected with the Cartier Crash. Though, due copyright and the fact that this piece is reputed I've decided to skip this particular one and talk about some less known but not less replica watches interesting pieces.Watch Dial an incident DesignI would choose to get started with a mind-blowing etching with foliate scroll motives. A design for an octagonal dial sandwiched by two case sides:Watchdial design with foliate scroll motives, Michiel le Blon, appr. omega watch copy 1620 - 1626On the most right case side you are able to spot several hunting objects like dogs and a hunter who's going to be kneeling down. Maybe this was additionally a way to obtain inspiration for your recent decoration about the Grand Master Chime of Patek Philippe (ref. nr. 5175)?Pocketwatch with 'Lollipop' HandLet's continue our tour using one of the initial instances of a lollipop hand I've ever seen. A good looking men's pocketwatch with a guilloche back and skeletonized fan-shaped pendulum. The silver dial is hand decorated which has a fine waffle-like motive. Confirm the big second-hand. A lollipop!?Pocket watch for guys with cobalt 'lollipop' resale, F. Breul, appr. 1800 - 1815Cartoonish IntermezzoBefore we move on I want to expose my watch related "piece of art" with this episode breitling chronometre navitimer :I've made a Birth of venus with the exact same love for replica watches as most of us do watches . Especially pay attention to the lower section which you could spot several iconic 'grails'. From left to right: Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch, Breitling Navitimer, Rolex (Pepsi) GMT and also a Panerai Radiomir. As extra topping I've also included a watch roll:Watch StandNowadays some replica watches are increasingly being packed with lots of diamonds to trap more attention. To further improve modern replica watches more, a great deal of stunning crazy watch winders and stands were introduced and produced in the last decades. Let's consider this over-the-top (pocket) watch stand to see that look for attention is nothing new:Glazed pottery (faience) watch stand with swirly rocailles and three lackeys, anonymous, appr. 1765 - 1775This is a useful one of your piece from your Rococo style period. A very decorative style-period around 1730 and 1770 with concentrate on rocaille (shell shaped) and asymmetric inspired motives. The pocket watch is usually mounted inside the centered socket of the stand and will turn it into a prominent eye-catching table-clock. Although table clocks aren't as fashionable as previously, these are still being manufactured by Jaeger-LeCoultre as an example.Watchmaker PortraitBelow a pencil drawing by Jan Gerard Waldorp like a painting because of the famous Dutch artist Frans Hals. The storyline goes that this person we're seeing is often a watchmaker (probably from Haarlem) from the 17th century and that he is holding among his "babies":Portrait of any watchmaker, pencil on parchment, Jan Gerard Waldorp, 1780In this work the watch is needed to produce a profession. Besides this, long ago (pocket)replica watches were often used as symbol for transience of our own lives. Those pieces had more to convey then just becoming a nice object or shape within the painting (still lives excluded). An amazing contrast when you compare it with the general aim of replica watches in paintings or pictures nowadays. Quite often any time a watch is included there is not a "secret" layer anymore and it's it purely ment to focus on wealth or beauty.EpilogueBelow I've included extra art pieces to top this episode off. Every one of the used pictures are public domain and hosted because of the famous Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. I would personally highly recommend to see this museum in case you are nearby Amsterdam. Otherwise, please take a digital tour inside 'Rijksstudio' at www.rijksmuseum.nl.Hope you've liked the tour!
