Why Piaget Watches Motivates My Art

By Gwylym Owen

My Love of Art and Watches such as Piaget Watches

I create art about horometry and other things that interest me. I belong to many watch forums and love mixing with people in those forums.

The Tourbillion Complication. Would you buy a Piaget Watch.

A tourbillon complication is a historically interesting technical innovation but isn’t required in a timepiece and yet we keep producing wristwatches with tourbillon complications. Are wristwatches even necessary today? Not really and yet we keep on wearing them. I have friends who buy watches, have you or your friends ever bought a Piaget Watch.That isn’t to say there won’t come a time when mechanical watches will never be required again, though. Omega Speedmaster Chronographs were worn by the Apollo Space astronauts. Did you know that it was the Omega Chronograph that helped astronauts safely navigate back to earth when their crippled spacecraft and much of its critical equipment lost functionality? None of us know the future and what disasters we may face. What if there is no electricity, for instance.

The Past and the Present

What’s interesting is what we keep and throw away and it isn’t always what’s useful or not useful.

Quartz Gives Me the Freedom to Do What I Do

Quartz chips inside computers act as a clock which powers my neural networks. I’m enthralled by metaverses and what they can potentially mean for the future of humanity but also appreciate the real world. Without time and our ability to record it I couldn’t do any of this stuff I enjoy doing so much. That’s why I love a Piaget Watch as much as any other watch. The old and new meet head on and still it is human imperfection that drives all of this perfection. I could go on and on about time and my excitement around these subjects and what they say about humanity but I choose to create art and say it visually.

Human Versus Machine. (Would you Own Piaget Watches?)

Humans and machines can either compete or cooperate and now is a great time to investigate what that actually means and what we actually are as humans. If you could own any watch, what watch would you own? Would you be happy wearing a Piaget Watch. Wristwatches are a unceasing reminder of the battle between order and chaos in everything we do. Entropy, decay and rebirth are tightly connected concepts that propel my passion for creating art with contemporary technology that is inspired 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.

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

Whatever the brand, whether it is a Piaget Watch, or any other type of brand. I’m joyful to make art with it. 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.

Humans Like to Think They are Perfect. Do Piaget Watches Represent Perfection for You?

Art perfection is all about imperfection for me. Humans are imperfect and art is human expression. Perfect code produces the perfect neural networks that I use to co-create my art with artificial intelligence and the real pursuit for me is to create imperfect art. What exemplifies this evolution of perfectionism more aptly than timepieces? Do you consider a Piaget Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

How Much Would You Pay for a Watch. Are Piaget Watches in Your Price Range

Are you interested in all types of watch brands and not just the very pricey types. Digital or mechanical watches are fascinating to me. Quartz watches are often thought of as inferior in some people’s minds but did you know that quartz watches nearly obliterated the Swish watch manufacturers because they were so accurate and cheap to produce? Quartz is a glorious thing and is inside every computer. I use those computers to power the neural networks that help me produce art–how could I not love quartz? I’d wear quartz or a mechanical watch from Piaget Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.

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

Not everyone can afford to wear a One Million Dollar watch, but everyone can afford to wear a different wristwatch and the functionality is the same–to tell the time! What price range would you consider when buying a watch? Would a Piaget Watch fit the bill for you?

Intrigued by Time and Brands like Piaget 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 Piaget Watch? There is a preciseness and perfection in the making of watches juxtaposed against the imperfection of humans that I try to portray in my art and find utterly intriguing.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 is the Deal with Us Watch Enthusiasts? and Watch Brands Such as Piaget Watches

There are loads of us that are into watches, but why? We’re overloaded with information in this modern world. These watches 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 Piaget Watch. Art is an expressive means of portraying humanity and what we’re capable of. It allows us to break the chains of time and highlights to us what we’re capable of accomplishing when we do so.

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

The art I form about watches sometimes don’t even resemble the original timepieces, unless I get a specific request from a collector. If I created a piece of art with a Piaget Watch, you might not even recognize it as a Piaget Watch. I have collectors who want their wristwatch to be the basis for the art I create and others are just interested in the actual art.
