100 Watches: An Il­lus­trated Col­lec­tion,

By Sun­flow­er­man

Plaza Watch International - - Books -

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.
