The 1960's came and went bringing with it color, controversy and indulgence. The velvet pants may be long gone, but more that 40 years later, one sixties icon still remains...Andy Warhol. In a word, the man is "timeless". And on the topic of time, Warhol's pop-art prints are now available on watches. The limited edition collection, made by Seiko, offers a little something for everyone. From a thin white model that satisfies this seasons fascination with all things mod, to Andy's famous banana, fulfilling your secret passion for the tropical fruit. Seiko has even created a 4 pack of watches for only $75, true Warhol value. And if the acid color pallet isn't your style, why not pay homage to Andy's most glamorous muse. The limited edition Marilyn watch comes at a little higher price tag of $500, but hey, studded with Swarovski Crystals, she's a real beauty. Seiko will also be coming out with a new line in the spring, offering watches with some of Warhol's more subdued imagery. So here's your chance to wear a little piece of history, and it's a bonus if you actually need a watch.
