Tonight at 9PM PST / 12AM EST, Vannen Artist Watches will release Contaminant, a Breaking Bad tribute watch, designed by Tristan Eaton. Eaton was the perfect choice to render the popular TV show as a timepiece. The LA-based designer (who I just interviewed) has watched “every single episode [of Breaking Bad], including the web exclusives and a bunch of interviews with the actors and creators”.
It’s rare that I get to interact directly with Pop Culture I love and when I do it can be a big F’n deal for me. Over the past few years, I’ve developed an unheathly addiction to the AMC series Breaking Bad. I’ve seriously watched every single episode. Needless to say, I was ecstatic to be asked to create a themed watch for the show via Vannen watches. They were open to doing something very subtle, so I designed the watch simply with cryptic imagery only die hard fans would underdstand. It’s a big F’n deal and I hope you all enjoy it.
The Contaminant watch retails for $80 with only 200 pieces available to the public, and it’s exclusively available at www.vannenwatches.com.
Catch up with Tristan Eaton in interviews here and here. If that’s not enough to keep you busy until tonight’s release, consider making some Breaking Bad paper dolls…
