Anti-Corporate Lifestyle Timepieces : F*ck 9-5 Cartier Watch
The Travis W. Simon ‘F*ck 9-5’ Cartier watch is a bold, brazen accessory created by the Brooklyn-based artist on commission by Mode Operandi as a timepiece for those with a disdain for the corporate lifestyle. The watch itself was sourced from Foundwell and is an 18-carat gold version of the timepiece that dates back to the 1980s and was taken apart for customization before being put back together. The dial of the watch is emblazoned with the bright red phrase ‘F*ck 9-5,’ which helps to instantly catch the eye of the onlooker for being a crass comment on corporatism.
The Travis W. Simon ‘F*ck 9-5’ Cartier watch is a fully functioning work of art that is being put up for auction by Watches of Knightsbridge on November 13, 2021.
