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 took 100 hours to complete and is inspired by the Rolex GMT-Master Pepsi reference 1675, a high-end GMT wristwatch that is inseparably linked to the world of watchmaking and intercontinental travel. Introduced in 1959 and based on the first GMT-Master reference 6542, the timepiece that inspired this horological artwork is the textbook example of a true classic. Accurate to extremely fine details such as the trademark patination of the "Pepsi bezel" as well as the hand-painted tritium dial, Tamás's art brings this spectacular timepiece – and its watch enthusiast-designated product counterpart – 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 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.
