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 was a New York City born and raised artist, musician, and producer. As part of the street art group named SAMO, Basquiat took advantage of a larger exposure of his art. Their art was known for their enigmatic epigrams displayed throughout the streets of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Basquiat art style focused on themes such as wealth versus poverty, integration versus segregation. His unique combination of text and image contributed to his fame. His pieces, such as Irony of Negro Policeman, were strongly political and direct in their address of power structure and systems of racism. Basquiat’s young life ended tragically at the age of 27. However, hundreds of artists still honor his risky and subversive artistic insight. His countercultural focus helped usher in the idea that street art was, in fact, real art. Moreover, his social commentary has had a lasting and powerful effect.
