    Art world phenomenon KAWS and Swiss watchmaker Ikepod’s 2012 collaboration resulted in a high-coveted timepiece that has introduced KAWS’s distinctive aesthetic to the world of horology.

    Based on the classic Horizon design created by Ikepod’s co-founder Marc Newson, a leading figure in design who was later involved in creating the Apple watch, KAWS reconceptualized the popular model with his signature circle teeth motif emblazoned across the black dial, while the hands are shaped in his trademark “X Eye” motif, which can also be found on the rubber strap near the special Ikepod clasp. Ikepod’s iconic pebble-shaped water-resistant case is coated in black titanium. Fitted with the automatic ETA 2892 movement, it captures KAWS’s style in an understated and playful way.

    Renowned for his clean visual imagery, KAWS’s reimagined Ikepod watch is sleek and minimalistic. The collaboration came just before Marc Newson’s departure from the company, bringing together two icons in their respective fields with equally diverse multidisciplinary practices. KAWS’s visual identity is perfectly embodied in this unique project, playing the line between art and time that beautifully integrates form and function.
