Daniel Arsham teamed up with Hong Kong watchmaker ANICORN on a limited edition collaboration. Officially dubbed the ARSHAM STUDIO STANDARD WATCH, the collaborative item boasts a stainless steel case body wrapped in tonal black and etched with the words “PAST – PRESENT – FUTURE.” An edition number (No. 1-100) of each watch will be embellished on the metal plate on the case back. The complete offering includes a mechanical timepiece, leather straps, hourglasses, stainless steel button, gloves, and a screwdriver.
“Arsham has unearthed a way of seeing the familiar objects of today as future artifacts – taking the past, and making it present,” said ARSHAM STUDIO. “Illustrating the concept of time with sensible touches. The collaboration, Arsham defies his perspective of time through this handcrafted mechanical timepiece.”
View the special timepiece above and expect an official release on Daniel Arsham’s official website as well as ANICORN’s online shop this May 11 at 12 p.m. EST. Pricing details are pending.
