For a long time, I swore never to be a person on call. Don’t get me wrong, I love all other types of jewelry – you should see the mounds of gold chains and statement rings on my nightstand – but something about watches has always struck me as more formal than it is. ‘amusing. For this reason, I’ve been looking for a watch that’s as fun as the rest of my wardrobe for quite some time. And finally, I found it! Cue Jen Stark x Armitron with the creative push the watchmaking world needed.

If you’re already a watchmaker, I don’t need to spend more time promoting Armitron, known for making “America’s Watch” and encouraging unique watches since 1975 (if you haven’t read the story of the founder of Eugen Gluck, I can almost guarantee he will have you in your feelings).

As for Jen Stark, her incredible 3D and 2D art has made waves (literally!) As she explores the conceptualization of visual systems. At first glance, his art is made up of vivid hues and sinuous shapes; but in reality geometry and kinetics studies are involved. Who can forget the rainbow wormhole she designed as part of Miley Cyrus’ 2015 VMA entry?

Now you can take Cyrus-approved trippy Stark art wherever you go, thanks to the collaboration we never knew you needed. Stark and Armitron have teamed up to launch eight incredible watches, divided into three categories. There are three silicone styles priced at $ 85, three mesh styles at $ 95, and two Apple Watch bands at just $ 40 a piece.

The range includes gold, silver and black metals, so there really is something for everyone. And of course, tons of color, although there are a few grayscale options in the mix for those who prefer brightly colored patterns.

While my maximalist heart wants to dress them up in the craziest rainbow cut I can find, I’m also tempted to wear mine with a monochrome black or a white t-shirt and jeans combo. Sometimes the art of doing this well alone makes a sufficient statement.
