‘Is That So?’ – John McLaughlin Edition Guitar & WristwatchHere are some beautifully handcrafted works of functional art that are collaborative efforts of many talented people, and will be a part of ONLY WATCH’s benefit auction conducted by Christie’s in Geneva, Switzerland this November.
I hand painted the Paul Reed Smith guitar using the art elements I first developed for the Is That So album cover. The guitar and watch are being auctioned together as a package.
Blandenier, a Geneva-based workshop, agreed to join this charitable project by producing the unique watch dial inspired by ‘Is That So?’ It took 110 hours of hand painting work to create the dazzling miniature painting on the dial.ONLY WATCH’s auction raises funds for research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and last time this auction was conducted a unique stainless steel wristwatch sold for a record-breaking CHF 31,000,000 or approximately £24 million.
