Sometimes art inspires art — like how pop artist Roy Lichtenstein drew heavy inspiration from comic books in the creation of his now-iconic paintings. However, the connection isn’t always so glaring. In fact, sometimes the best art-inspired-art requires a more trained, discerning eye. Such is the case with the Oris Artelier Art Blakey Limited Edition watch.

For those not in the know, Art Blakey is an American jazz drummer and bandleader of epic proportions — he even received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005. And this automatic self-winding watch captures his spirit through a dial design modeled after his eight-claw bass drum and with a caseback inspired by the look of cymbals. Limited to just 1,000 pieces, the watch also features a stainless steel case, a sleek leather band, and the whole thing comes in a special presentation box with a certificate of authenticity and individual serial number. Wrap this American music-inspired timepiece around your wrist today for $2,100.

Purchase: $2,100
