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 120 hours to complete and is inspired by the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 6263, a high-end chronograph wristwatch that is inseparably linked to the world of motorsports. Introduced in the early 1970s and powered by the legendary hand-wound Valjoux 727 movement, the timepiece that inspired this horological artwork is the textbook example of a true classic. Accurate to extremely fine details such as the trademark typefaces of the bezel and dial as well as the superb rendition of the checkered flag that brings the world of motorsport into this drawing, Tamás's art brings this spectacular timepiece – and high-octane car racing – 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.
