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 Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch drawing took 120 hours to complete and is inspired by the moment when Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin wore his Omega Speedmaster as he joined Armstrong on the lunar surface on July 20th, 1969, making it the first watch ever worn on the moon. Deservedly called the Moonwatch ever since by watch enthusiasts the world over, aBlogtoWatch Store's featured watch artist, Tamás Fehér chose to pay painstaking tribute to this milestone in the history of mankind – and indeed horology.
Accurate to extremely fine details such as the characteristic patination of the black bezel, the tiniest grooves within the sub-dials and the three-dimensionality of the craters of the moon, Tamás's art brings this spectacular timepiece – and the scene of its most memorable performance – to an immense 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 120 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.
