Rotary Watches Motivates My Art

By Gwylym Owen

My Love of Art and Watches such as Rotary Watches

I love watchmaking and time is such an interesting topic for me, so it is natural that my art topics include many watches, such as Rotary Watches. I’m a member of various wristwatch communities on the internet.

The Uselessness of the Past

I’m intrigued about the usefulness and uselessness of past and present, what we choose to keep; and what we assign to the history books.

Quartz is a Modern Miracle

Quartz chips inside computers act as a clock which powers my neural networks. I love spending time in metaverses and thinking about what they mean for the future of humanity but equally love the real world. None of what I do could be done without the invention of accurate time and the ability to record it. That’s why I love a Rotary Watch as much as any other watch. The old meets the new and still it is humans and their imperfections that drive all of this perfection. I could go on and on about time and my infatuation around these subjects and what they say about humanity but I choose to create art and say it visually.

Captivated by Time and Brands like Rotary Watches

Time is an intriguing 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 Rotary Watch? I love the juxtaposition of the precision involved in the crafting of quality mechanical timepieces and the precise nature of making of digital watches, against the chaotic freedom and human expressionism found in my art.Art isn’t a science, but watch production is! Don’t you just love the conflict between these two things.

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

Do you like all types of watch brands and don’t limit yourself to just the high-priced ones. Digital or mechanical timepieces 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 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 Rotary Watches if they produce either because it isn’t what influences my buying decisions.

It is the Concept of Time That Intrigues me. Do you Like My Art about Rotary Watches

It doesn’t matter to me if I use a Rotary Watch, or any other type of watch brand. Price of the wristwatch doesn’t matter to me because it is the concept of time that intrigues me.

What is the Deal with Us Watch Enthusiasts? and Watch Brands Such as Rotary Watches

Why do so many of us have this enthusiasm for watches? We live in such a fast-paced world and everything is served up to us instantly. A watch is a way to prize time and life’s rhythms. Do you own any watches? Leave a comment below to let me know what watches you own, especially if you own a Rotary Watch. Art is the ultimate statement 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.

Head to Head or a Peaceful Coexistence with Machine. (Would you Own Rotary 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 Rotary Watch. Watches remind us of this battle between chaos and order. Entropy, decay and rebirth are tightly connected concepts that drive my vivacity for creating art with state-of-the-art 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.

The Tourbillion Complication. Would you buy a Rotary Watch.

A tourbillon complication is such a fascinating movement but there is absolutely no requirement to have that in a timepiece, and yet, we keep it anyway, so interesting! Do we even require a timepiece these days? Probably not, but we still love them and keep them around. I have friends who buy watches, have you or your friends ever bought a Rotary Watch.This doesn’t mean that watches will never be needed again. Apollo astronauts chose the Omega Speedmaster Chronograph wristwatch to go to space with. If the Apollo astronauts never had the Omega Chronograph watch they wouldn’t have been able to find their way back to earth when highly technical navigation equipment failed. Who knows whether we’ll have electricity shortages, or some other natural disasters that render the technology – that we currently rely on – useless in the future.

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

Art should be imperfect as it is an expression of humanity and humans are imperfect. 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. Watches represent this perfection precisely and it all relates back to this friction of order and chaos. Do you consider a Rotary Watch to represent perfection, or would you choose some other watch? Let me know in the comments.

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

If you can afford a One Million Dollar watch that’s fantastic,  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 Rotary Watch fit the bill for you?

Any Brand Will Do. Would you Wear Rotary Watches

The watch art I produce can sometimes barely resemble the original watches 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 Rotary Watch, you might not even recognize it as a Rotary Watch. I have collectors who want their watch to be the basis for the art I make and others are just interested in the actual art.
