Patek Philippe Dome Clock Hand-Painted by Graffiti Artist John 'CRASH' Matos Offered in Antiquorum's December Auction
Antiquorum Auctioneers will present an extraordinary example of art and design, a one-of-a-kind Patek Philppe solar dome clock hand-painted by renowned graffiti artist, John "CRASH" Matos at its auction of "Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces" in New York on December 13th. The proceeds from the sale of this piece will be donated to the Aids Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA).
This is the first item CRASH has hand painted since he famously painted the English guitarist and singer-songwriter Eric Clapton's five guitars, one of which sold at auction for over $321,000 in 2004. The exquisite clock was first displayed along with new large scale paintings by CRASH at his exhibit "CRASH: Back on the Block" hosted by Antiquorum in their gallery space on September 12th through October 6th.
Made circa 1960, this is a very fine and rare solar-powered and electro-mechanical gilt brass and hand-painted table clock. It is offered with a pre-auction estimate of $10,000 - $15,000.
