Rare astonishing black PVD coated stainless steel and gold QUINTING “Street Art Collection” kinetic art watch, Ref. Q5SL56SAX, SN. 571-13, created in 2014 for a special event as unique piece. The watch has been hand-decorated with graffiti using an enamelling technique and hand signed by the artist. Enamel is the latest element to fill the void created by Quinting’s patented “transparent” movement and dial. It is painted on the sapphire discs much like on a stained-glass window and involve four different scenery pieces, two fixed, one turning at the speed of hours and one at the speed of minutes. The icing on the cake is amazingly beautiful luminous butterfly on the last layer, which create the unique face at the night.
What if subversion wasn’t in the streets anymore but on the wrist of enlightened souls? When Quinting first launched its Street Art Collection, graffiti still was an underground art only saw on your neighborhood’s walls. A few months later, the biggest world-famous brands successfully blend luxury, fashion and street art. With the Street Art Collection, Quinting does not only pick some popular designs but creates unseen motifs directly coming from the brain of its exclusive artists. All the models are unique pieces, hand-decorated with enamel and involve four different scenery pieces, two fixed, one turning at the speed of hours and one at the speed of minutes. Another step in the astonishing kinetic art dear to Quinting! All three pieces create together a real work of art, a coherent whole different for each watch. All the designs comport superluminova elements to create different motifs day and night, just as the different faces of a street the day or at night.
Quinting’s movement was created to fulfill the dream of a 100% transparent watch. The Quinting watches are not entire mechanic movements, inside the external rim of the case four motors and a battery are hidden from view. From these motors, the hands are driven by the system of mobile sapphire crystals. Patented transparent electro-magnetic movement composed of 7 perfectly parallel sapphire discs with an anti-reflection coating.
Runs great and all functions work as expected. Please take a look at the photos for condition. Watch is in practically mint condition, running and ready to wear or gift! A fine investment that is guaranteed to increase in value as the years go by.
