100 Watches: An Illustrated Collection,
Sunflowerman is, thankfully, not his real name. But when this American illustrator, best known for working in menswear, set himself a project – painting 100 water colours of classic watches, or watches with personal stories behind them, one every day for 100 days – he created an entirely fresh way at looking at timepieces. Each of the paperback book-sized paintings have now been gathered into a coffee-table book, cataloguing his affectionate portraits of timepieces as diverse as those from Braun and Bulgari, MB&F and Maranez. A welcome break from the brightly-lit, all details and no soul pack-shots that comprise most watch imagery out there.
