For the Love of Art and Watches such as Mondaine Watches

I make art about horology and other things that interest me. I know quite a few timepiece Admirers online.

The Past and the Present

Some things should probably be historical and yet we keep them around even though their usefulness has become unwarranted in the modern era–that’s very curious.

We are Far from Perfect. Do Mondaine Watches Represent Perfection for You?

Art to me should be full of imperfections like humanity. The undertaking for me is to achieve this imperfection through the means of perfect code that produces perfect neural networks in the age of digital perfectionism. Does anything represent this friction between perfection better than wristwatches and my art? Wristwatches represent perfection and my art is playing with the concept between this perfection and imperfection. Do you consider a Mondaine Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

Time is Valuable. Do you Like My Art about Mondaine Watches

I am just as cheerful forming art with the subject being a Mondaine Watch or any other brand. Price of the wristwatch doesn’t matter to me because it is the concept of time that intrigues me.

Head to Head or a Peaceful Coexistence with Machine. (Would you Own Mondaine Watches?)

Man and machine are starting to compete on an equal basis and we need to think of ways in which we can complement each other and work together, we need to investigate what it means to be human, and how we reconcile into this new archetype. If you could own any watch, what watch would you own? Would you be happy wearing a Mondaine Watch. Quality watches serve as an exquisite reminder of the constant battle between order and chaos. Entropy, decay and rebirth are tightly connected concepts that propel my enthusiasm for creating art with state-of-the-art technology that is stimulated by these mechanical marvels. Art is a visual language and using all these things together really speaks volumes about the messages I’m trying to convey.

Does the Price of a Watch Matter. Are Mondaine Watches in Your Price Range

Are you interested in all types of watch brands and not just the exorbitant types. Digital or mechanical watches are fascinating to me. Quartz watches nearly dismantled the Swish watch industry because watches powered by quartz were more precise than any of the mechanical movements that came before. Quartz makes it possible for my computers to function and those computers power my neural networks which allows me to create my art. I’d wear quartz or a mechanical watch from Mondaine Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.

I’ll Make Art With Any Brand. Would you Wear Mondaine Watches

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

Timekeeping is Worth Appreciating. Mondaine Watches Might be Right for You

Anyone can afford a wristwatch because they come in different price brackets. It doesn’t matter how much you spend, you can still start appreciating time and the invention of time keeping. What price range would you consider when buying a watch? Would a Mondaine Watch fit the bill for you?

There Must be a Reason for our Obsession with Horometry and Watch Brands Such as Mondaine Watches

Why do so many of us have this infatuation for watchmaking? We live in such a fast-paced world and everything is served up to us instantly. Watches record a measured, methodical, never changing pace that can be lacking in modern life. Do you own any watches? Leave a comment below to let me know what watches you own, especially if you own a Mondaine Watch. Art is the ultimate declaration 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 means.

Gripped by Time and Brands like Mondaine Watches

Time is a gripping subject. Time is one of my great passions. Does the concept of time give you a sense of awe? I’ve owned watches since I was a young boy, have you ever owned watches? What do you think about a Mondaine Watch? I enjoy the juxtaposition of the precision involved in the crafting of quality mechanical timepieces and the precise nature of manufacturing of digital watches, against the chaotic freedom and human expressionism found in my art.Humanity is flawed and often imprecise and yet we are still able to create precision instruments like watches. I enjoy playing with this concept in my art.

The Tourbillion Complication. Would you buy a Mondaine Watch.

The tourbillon complication is an example of uselessness being kept for prosperity. There’s no requirement for this complication in a watch and yet we choose to keep it in the finest wristwatches. There’s no need for a mechanical wristwatch if you think about it. I have friends who buy watches, have you or your friends ever bought a Mondaine Watch.You never know what the future has in store and there may come a time when we once again rely on watches. Apollo astronauts chose the Omega Speedmaster Chronograph watch to go to space with. The Omega chronograph allowed the astronauts to return to earth safely when the technical equipment on board the Apollo spacecraft stopped working. None of us know the future and what disasters we may face. What if there is no electricity, for instance.

Who Doesn’t Love Quartz

Neural networks that I use to create my art use computers and those computers have quartz crystals that function as a clock. I like to play around in metaverses and investigate future worlds, whilst remembering and cherishing our actual. None of this would be doable without time and our ability to record it. That’s why I love a Mondaine Watch as much as any other watch. The old and the new constantly collide and still it is the imperfection of humanity that allows us to create all of the perfection we are surrounded by. I could endlessly expand on my enthusiasm and curiosity of time, and if anyone would be stupid enough to ask me to do so, I could probably bore them for an infinite number of hours on the subject.
