Ron Wood Marks Time

With plans up in the air on a 2012 Rolling Stones album or tour (story), Ron Wood has time on his hands that he is applying towards creating some nice faces for the hands of time.  The Stones and Faces guitarist has joined forces with watch maker Benmont to create a limited edition of clocks featuring his artwork.  Each hand painted clock face will display an image depicting a point in the guitarist's life.  The high-end time pieces meticulously built by the company that earned the UK Watch Brand Of The Year feature remarkably detailed works showcased in an elaborate hinged compartment.  Each of the custom built marine style clocks features three time zones and 90 day chronograph.  The complexity of assembling the highly detailed clocks will limit each to a run of 10-15 pieces per year.  Wood calls the opportunity to work with the watch company an '...exciting adventure'.  Given the limited run and quality of the time pieces, you can bet it will be lucrative as well (no prices were available).  He added, 'I feel there will be a magnificent opportunity through my art to show what has influenced me throughout my life, which includes my water heritage, my well documented life in music and my abiding passion for horses.'  Looks like much younger women finished out of the running.
