Watches have proved one of the richest veins of Mondrian-inspired creativity.

(7th October 2001)

Found one at last, selling on eBay from Germany:

Collecting tank clock of WAW (World type Watch). AGAIN and PACKS - not a none times carried. Clock with motive for art. Piet Mondrian " Composition with blue ". The clock is water-rejecting and 1997 in Germany was manufactured. The clock carries the note " quality Product " and the Hersteler offers 1 year warranty (which ran however meanwhile). Importantly: The clock functions! Dispatch by post office. The buyer bears cost. Dispatch after receipt of the transfer.

Now in stock. Ropey strap, but that is unimportant - the watch itself is a beaut.
Still looking for a Swatch.

Two more on eBay from Germany, now in stock

This pair is from the Tokai Art Club Limited Edition - one of those editions limited to as many as they can sell, I suspect. Jolly nice, all the same.

Swedish Hotel souvenir watch Piet Mondrian inspired
Hotel souvenir watch tank from Quality Hotel 11 Gothenburg Sweden (Choice Hotels Scandinavia).The Hotel 11 are situated in a former shipyard. The composition of the dial looks as it has been inspired by a Piet Mondrian painting. Ordinary figures on the clockface are replaced by the number 11 all over. The clockwork is marked "MIYOTA JAPAN NO JEWELS UNADJUSTED". The battery is replaced about two weeks ago. I think that this wristwatch was made in a limited edition approx 20 years ago. It is used and there are scratches and dings. But nothing you can't live with.
The Mondrian fountain pen is made by Acme. The case is nicely made but the working bits inside are rather cheap and nasty. This was, in fact, my first acquisition (year 2000) - before I realised I was collecting PM.

The second pen, a Sheaffer ballpen, came with a Mondrian Journal listed elsewhere. Jolly nice it is too, especially as I only paid $1 for both.

Sensa Pen...Mondrian Series
In recognition of the Artist "Piet Mondrian", Sensa offered a series called the Mondrian Collection. Production of this series stopped in June of 1998. Each Mondrian Pen features a "Logo Lens" based on his (Mondrians) "Composition in Red, Yellow and Blue". This is the (Silver with Candmium Yellow Style #04303), very hard to find, it would be a great addition for Sensa Pen fans & collectors. It's in MINT condition, never used (only stored), comes with original box & case (both mint).

Not terribly impressed with these, but for the sake of completeness I will include them.

Piet Mondrian rare pen & pencil set by ACME
In developing the Mondrian Rollerball and Fountain pens that were on the market until recently, Acme did many experiments in color, style, and even different pen shapes. This is one of those different pen shapes. The thin black line design is the ballpoint pen and the thick black line design is the mechanical pencil. These were intended to be sold as a set, but never made it into production. Only 3 complete sets exist. This is one of those sets. Perfect working condition.
