Bringing new meaning to the words 'time frame,' the Schmutz watch art series is like a collection of small-scale framed artwork that is meant to be worn on the wrist.

Each one is a one-of-a-kind piece as they are individually, hand-crafted and hand-painted by various contemporary artists. As company executive Lee Dowell explains, the designs are "a collaboration between leather artists, leather craftsman, machinists, watchmakers" as well as the wearer who can customize and style the watches. Choose a strap color, accent color and artist to craft a dial for a personalized piece of artwork.

The smooth, rectangular shape sets this collection of timepieces apart and acts as a perfect frame for the watch art designs that are on display on the face of the watches.
