Numbered edition - no. 21665/49999.
Action-packed, full of drips and movement of paint across the canvas and gestures, Sam Francis’s (GZ123) eponymous collaboration with Swatch is an action painting on the wrist. The bright dial is in a deep crimson colour with an intense blue background floating over black. The hands are red as well, and the strap features black shapes, aquamarine pools and red, yellow, blue and green splashes. Full of the presence of the artist and the evidence of time, you can almost feel the painting taking shape on your wrist. Flexible and in plastic with transparent points, this work is a true Art Special: a special art in the form of a watch.

Perfect watch - never used.

The case (that completes the item) has some signs of ageing outside (creases on the edges of the front inscription) - the photos are an integral part of the description.

It will be shipped with insurance and a proper packaging.
