Fishbone have teamed up with Vannen Watches to issue a limited edition Fishbone wristwatch.
Available for purchase at VannenWatches.com for only $60, the matte black watch boasts the unmistakable Fishbone logo on the inside surface of the crystal along with a matte black dial with glossy black hands. The watch comes in a custom box and orders will be randomly chosen to receive their packaging signed by the band themselves.
Over the course of their career Fishbone have continually proven themselves to be one of the most innovative, dynamic and original bands around, so teaming up with Vannen was a natural fit for the legendary L.A. ska/funk outfit.
Vannen’s mission statement echoes the spirit of Fishbone’s music and commitment to artistic individuality: “We create pieces that appeal to forward-thinking, style-savvy individuals while honoring the distinctive vision of every artist and brand we work with. Every Vannen Watch is a collaboration, from the design and packaging to the bonuses that have become a cornerstone of the Vannen experience. There is no single Vannen aesthetic. You just know a Vannen watch when you see one.”
They go on to say: “Vannen Watches was created by David Stowe in 2008 to help take a pro-artist stance and build a global community of friends united by their love of art, music, and fashion. When you collect Vannen, you can feel good about your purchase. Your investment is felt directly by the artists, and you become part of a cycle of friends supporting friends. Each collection of watches bolsters the scene by bringing awareness to artists and inviting the world to experience something new.”
