IKON Watches honors those whose names and faces have long outlived their lifetime and defined an era
London, UK. January 6th, 2015 – IKON Watches is launching its premier collection to honor personalities whose names and faces long outlived their lifetime and defined an era. The face of each of these watches feature a different work from the artist Maximillian Davis who blends pop-art with the work of the old masters to create colorful unique images that make a statement. The collection includes the six models: Kurt Cobain, Abraham Lincoln, Aaron Paul, Pablo Escobar, Michael Jackson, and Marilyn Monroe.
The IKON watches are assembled with top quality materials like scratch resistant sapphire glass for the face and a Swiss ronda quartz movement. The battery life is made to last a minimum of three years and the watch is water resistant up to 30 meters. For low-light visibility the main indices as well as the hour and minute hands are luminescent.
“We want to able to offer a full line of watches featuring many era defining icons. The objective is to offer a wide variety of watches while keeping our product at an affordable price.” says Harry Bennett, founder of IKON Watches.
With a background in IT and design, Harry Bennett has had an obsession with wrist watches for as long as he can remember. Artist Maximillian Davis went on to study business in college at a top 10 undergraduate program. After graduation he started and sold his own successful company, and dedicated himself full-time to artwork. As an artist, his goal is not to appeal to the art establishment.
IKON Watches is launching a Kickstarter campaign on January 19th, 2016. Backers will be able to get the watch at a fraction of its expected retail price. Its goal is to cover £15,000 to cover the first production run and to ensure that it can be brought to market.
