Motivated to Create Art with Dakota Watches

By Gwylym Owen

My Love of Art and Watches such as Dakota Watches

As an artist who relishes horology I find myself producing a lot of art that includes watches from Dakota Watches as the subject. The internet groups for wristwatch hobbyists have always been a great place to hang around and get inspired.

What is the Fascination with Watches and Watch Brands Such as Dakota Watches

Why do so many of us have this excitement for watchmaking? We live in such a fast-paced world and everything is served up to us instantly. These wristwatches are a great reminder of the need to slow down and prize life. Do you own any watches? Leave a comment below to let me know what watches you own, especially if you own a Dakota Watch. Art is the ultimate expression of humanity and serves to interrupt life’s rhythms and remind us about the other side of what humans are capable of and what humanity ultimately is.

Tourbillion isn’t Required and yet we Keep it Around. Would you buy a Dakota Watch.

The tourbillon complication is an example of uselessness being kept for prosperity. There’s no need for this complication in a watch and yet we choose to preserve it in the finest timepieces. There’s no requirement for a mechanical wristwatch if you think about it. I have friends who buy watches, have you or your friends ever bought a Dakota Watch.This doesn’t mean that wristwatches will never be needed again. Omega Speedmaster Chronographs were worn by the Apollo Space astronauts. It was the Omega Chronograph timepiece that helped them navigate back to earth when all other instruments failed. Who knows what the future holds, we may not have the use of current technology due to a natural disaster like running out of electricity, or a nuclear fallout that ruins digital technology. A mechanical timepiece could become essential if that type of thing were to happen.

Quartz is a Modern Miracle

Neural networks that I use to create my art use computers and those computers have quartz crystals that act as a clock. I enjoy investigating what the metaverse and future worlds mean to humanity, whilst treasuring the actual world. Literally, none of this would be conceivable without the concept and inventions of time-keeping. That’s why I love a Dakota Watch as much as any other watch. Old meets the new and it is the imperfection of humans that drives this perfection we see all around us. I could wax-lyrical for days about time and art and how this fits into our humanity.

Anyone Can Afford to Appreciate Time. Dakota Watches Might be Right for You

If you can afford a One Million Dollar watch that’s superb,  but you really don’t need to spend that to start appreciating the modern marvel of watchmaking. What price range would you consider when buying a watch? Would a Dakota Watch fit the bill for you?

Will Machines Steal Your Lunch. (Would you Own Dakota Watches?)

Man and machine are starting to have to compete with each other more and more and now is a good time to investigate and assert our humanity. If you could own any watch, what watch would you own? Would you be happy wearing a Dakota Watch. Quality wristwatches serve as an exquisite reminder of the constant battle between order and chaos. Entropy, decay and rebirth are concepts that are tightly entwined in many of my artworks. The fact I use groundbreaking artificial intelligence technology to make these works of art that are inspired by old tech(the wristwatches), I find really interesting. Art is a visual language and using all these things together really speaks volumes about the messages I’m trying to convey.

Gripped by Time and Brands like Dakota Watches

Time is a captivating subject. Time, technology and art are the things that really captivates me. I’ve owned watches since I was a young boy, have you ever owned watches? What do you think about a Dakota Watch? The manufacturing processes involved in watchmaking are so precise and are entirely at odds with what I try to create in my art. Humanity is flawed and often imprecise and yet we are still able to create precision instruments like wristwatches. I like playing with this concept in my art.

What Useless Things Will we Keep in the Future

Some things get assigned to history while we continue to embrace other things that aren’t useful in a practical sense; and it’s so curious.

All Watches Are Modern Marvels. Are Dakota Watches in Your Price Range

Are you into all brands of watches, not just the exorbitant ones? I am intrigued by mechanical and digital timepieces. Quartz was a modern-day miracle for watchmaking and nearly destroyed the Swish watch companies because they were so accurate. Quartz is in the computers which powers my artificial intelligence networks that I use to make art with. I’d wear quartz or a mechanical watch from Dakota Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.

The Perfect Expression of Humanity is Imperfection. Do Dakota Watches Represent Perfection for You?

Art should be imperfect like humanity is imperfect. It’s a real undertaking to create imperfection when I’m using perfect code to create perfect artificial intelligence in a perfect world of digital perfection. Wristwatches really are perfection and so I find it a useful subject to express – through visual language – the conflict between order and chaos that rages on. Do you consider a Dakota Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

Making Art is Thrilling. Do you Like My Art about Dakota Watches

I am just as happy producing art with the subject being a Dakota Watch or any other brand. The price of a timepiece doesn’t factor in what I choose to form art with because it is the concept of time that attracts me.

Any Brand Will Do. Would you Wear Dakota Watches

The timepiece art I form can sometimes barely resemble the original timepieces most of the time, unless a client requests a commission of their particular watch, which I’m happy to do. If I created a piece of art with a Dakota Watch, you might not even recognize it as a Dakota Watch. I have collectors who want their wristwatch to be the basis for the art I manufacture and others are just intrigued in the actual art.
