“Andy Warhol ‘Times 5’ ”
The foundation for the Artists’ Series was laid in 1983 when Movado suggested to American “Pop” artist Andy Warhol (1931–1987) that he use the wristwatch as an art medium. A lover and collector of watches, Warhol often expressed subjects in multiple, utilized photographic images and turned objects as ordinary as a soup can into art.
The timepiece Warhol designed for Movado reflects his fascination with multiple photographic images and everyday objects. Produced posthumously in 1987, and titled “Andy Warhol ‘Times 5’ ”, the timepiece is comprised of five separate watches in rectangular cases linked to form a bracelet. Each features one of a series of black and white photos of “his” city, New York, on the dial.
