Basquiat Watch - Skull (Uuntitled) - Daem



This Basquiat Watch represents: ' Skull'. Skull blends two of Basquiat's most powerful works. His Untitled artwork (a.k.a. Skull) was presented at his debut solo exhibition in New York. The case of the watch, like the painting, allows for a look at both the surface and the inside of the piece. The canvas strap is made with excerpts from Basquiat’s Undiscovered Genius painting. The complexity of artworks - Genius and Skull - are tied together through the 25-jewel Swiss ETA automatic movement powering the timepiece.

Daem designs all of their watches in their Brooklyn studio. They are located in an old Williamsburg factory that's been converted, on a tree-lined street opposite the subway tracks.  Their watches are made in the Basel region of northern Switzerland. After visiting manufacturers across Switzerland and the United States, they found a watchmaker who's truly world-class and can bring their designs to life. This Skull watch is made with  Swiss ETA caliber 2824-2 25-jewel automatic movement, the industry quality standard for self-winding movements and Sapphire crystal glass, a superior scratch-resistant crystal that offers excellent clarity.  More details on Basquiat Watch - Skull (Uuntitled) - Daem:

Jean-Michel Basquiat is one of the best known artists of his generation and is widely considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. His career in art spanned the late 1970s through the 1980s until his death in 1988, at the age of 27. Basquiat works are edgy and raw, and through a bold sense of color and composition, he maintains a fine balance between seemingly contradictory forces such as control and spontaneity, menace and wit, urban imagery and primitivism. The Basquiat brand embodies the values and aspirations of young, international urban culture.
The conjunction of various media is an integral element of Basquiat's art. His paintings are typically covered with text and codes of all kinds: words, letters, numerals, pictograms, logos, map symbols, diagrams and more, and featured multi-panel paintings and individual canvases with exposed stretcher bars, the surface dense with writing, collage and imagery.
