Second Club Watch 2016-2017
Dedicated to Club members
Inspired by the large scale, hand-embroidered wall hanging, "Selva Blanca" by Argentinian artists Leo Chiachio and Daniel Giannone, PIOLIN'S TIME (SUOZ240S/S-1) is the Second Club Watch of the year and a limited and numbered Art Special of only 2,626 pieces.
Each unique watch is an embroidered montage of bright colors and design derived directly from the 4.60x2.85 meter "Selva Blanca". The original work, made of cotton, wool, rayon and jewelry-effect threads, features Piolin, the artists' beloved pet Dachshund. The artwork inspiration is attributed to nature and the Ukrainian artist Sonia Delaunay.

Get to Know the Artists
Leo Chiachio and Daniel Giannone
Hailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Chiachio and Giannone have been re-inventing the time-honored craft of embroidery since 2003. Inspired by a multitude of subjects, mediums and artists, their self-referential portrait style embroidery boldly communicates on the evolving definition of family, which in their case is a family of two men with their dogs. Utilizing a dazzling array of colored threads and fabrics, their work could best be summarized as painting with needles.
