Get your piece of horological art: these high-end prints are of entirely hand-drawn images that take up to two weeks to go from a clean sheet to a finished piece.
Through years of passionate and relentless work, Tamás Fehér has evolved from talented part-time sketcher to full-time horological artist. His personal touch is in depicting the unique intertwine between a timepiece and the historic stories behind it, resulting in an image that pays homage to watchmaking icons and their roles in modern history.
This drawing is inspired by the 1963 Rolex Explorer 1016, a 36mm wide, stunningly beautiful variation of the Explorer. Nearly sixty years later, 2021 saw the Rolex Explorer return to its original diameter at 36mm – getting remarkably close to the beautiful proportions of this reference 1016. Whether you appreciate the history of the Explorer or are getting the latest 36mm version, this horological artwork will definitely help you appreciate this stunning line of watches at a much greater scale. Accurate to extremely fine details such as the typical Rolex surface treatments of the polished bezel and brushed case, as well as the superb rendition of Mount Everest, the mountain that inspired the Explorer watch collection, Tamás's drawing brings this spectacular timepiece to a larger-than-life scale for unrivaled appreciation.
“I initially started drawing watches just for myself to get, in my own way, closer to the watches that I liked. Sometimes I work on a single drawing for 100 hours. Spending days over their minute details is how I bring the beauty of a watch into focus, albeit on a larger scale.”
Once a drawing is complete, a state-of-the-art scanner is used to faithfully digitalize all its hand-made details and allow for archival quality printing. The paper we use for all prints is Bockingford 300g by St. Cuthberts Mill, who have been making paper on the same site since the 1700’s by the ancient Cathedral City of Wells, England.
