‘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.

This is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long while. Great job, and congrats on being chosen for such an amazing commission! Cheers
I can’t stop admiring the paint job on the JM PRS… simply and complexly amazing! I’m wondering what type of paint was used, acrylic, oils? Perhaps something I’m not yet familiar with? Soooo awesome!!!
He is a lucky kat to be strumming that thing there! So sweet.
Tired to locate in the link what date this particular auction begins in November?!
Spectacular. Beautiful work.
