I came across this image as I surfed the Great World Wide Web. It was meant to be in the name of art. ART? Well not art! Arts and Crafts. It was a "when you get bored" type of thing. At first I was horrified; to me, these watches had been silenced and stopped, deadened if you will. And then as I was mulling over this picture, an overwhelming sense of realization appeared to me: The power of the watch is in its movement and its constant gentle precision like the heart beat of a living creature. A watch is so much more than the sum of its parts.
