Pablo Picasso: A Tireless Painter and Father of Cubism with a Passion for Watches

Pablo Picasso is undoubtedly one of the most well-known artists of the twentieth century. He was a tireless painter who was praised for his revolutionary style, cubism. However, what many may not know is that Picasso had a passion for watches.

In a rare image of the artist, we see him wearing an anonymous yellow gold automatic wristwatch with the numerals around the circular enamel dial spelling out his name. It's fascinating to note that Picasso never removed the timepiece when painting in his studio, making these watches priceless for both art and watch collectors.

There are only three known watches that belonged to Picasso in similar configurations. One timepiece has recently hit the auction block for nearly 220,000 dollars, while the others have yet to surface.

Picasso's love for watches echoes throughout his life, where he utilized them to add a unique touch to his fashion. His collection included a variety of styles such as round, square, and rectangular watches, each indicative of a different era in his life.

It's clear that the world of watches played a significant role in Picasso's life. Moreover, as one of the most important artists of his time, owning a watch that he wore while creating his masterpieces is a valuable addition to any collection. For those who appreciate art and watches, the story behind Picasso's passion for his wristwatches makes these timepieces all the more exceptional.
