The fact that Speedmaster found themselves in David Bowie's album artThe inner cover art of David Bowie's concept-album Lodger (1979) contains photos of an Omega Speedmaster Professional and an Omega Flightmaster. Why is that? It doesn't appear to fit the overall postcard design, that has a 'falling' Bowie at the front. Designer Derek Boshier provides some insight in the design process and explains the replica watches.David Bowie's Lodger, the last of these 'Berlin period albums', can be a concept album regarding a homeless traveller, released in May 1979. It received significantly less press enthusiasm than predecessors Low and Heroes, while record label RCA compared it to Sgt. Peppers and despite hit songs DJ and Boys Keep Swinging. Lodger failed to meet with the high expectations Bowie had set regarding his previous work. Nonetheless, the album became gold within the Netherlands and also the Uk.FallingLodger includes a gatefold cover - such as a double album you may open it up. The outdoors shows content card design featuring a photo of any 'falling' David Bowie. The interior shows several photos of people setting up dead or alive, plus two funky photos of wristreplica watches. All against a history of an pail of water being added too a sink. Anybody that takes a start looking at the inside the gatefold can look twice at the replica watches simply because they just don't appear to match the design and style.Ground Control to Major Tom?Watch fanatics will need a much better glance at the watch pictures: two full colours of seemingly free flying replica watches.Each picture is numbered. The Omega Speedmaster Professional features a One out of the corner; the photo in the Omega Flightmaster a 3. It can be eye candy for watch enthusiasts, showing dials, hands, buttons, bracelets and materials in full detail. But what could they be doing with this record cover art? They belong in the book for watch fanatics, collectors or jewellers, not through LodgerWould Bowie like replica watches? Isn't he always in advance, or maybe beyond time? Why specifically both of these replica watches? Was the cover art designer an Omega-fan lounge chair somewhere: was David? Will it be a wink at space travelling, Ziggy Stardust and Major Tom or - spiritually - a nod with the reasoning behind Heaven, Gods and astronauts?Enter Derek BoshierThere should be grounds, an email, a deeper meaning, a greater goal or at least a clarification to the remarkable existence of those timepieces. Not a way that these two were chosen here coincidentally. Online investigation learns enough regarding the cover art, but nothing specifically in regards to the wristreplica watches. Bowie never responded but designer Derek Boshier (1937), who designed the duvet art, was quick within the draw and very happy to tell a fascinating story of surprises, creative thinking and happy accidents.SurpriseIt all came from 1978, when Derek Boshier, 41 at that time, was inspired to curate an exhibition that included work by photographer Brian Duffy (1933 - 2010). Derek: "One day Brian explained he wanted me to meet a friend of his. Somehow, I became believing that he'd us a blind date which has a nice lady. And so i attended the appointment and it was surprised not meet a female, but David Bowie. The singer asked me if I'd be interested in collaborating with him and Duffy around the model of his new album cover".Falling without fallingDuffy needed to use a falling Bowie for the cover. Not fallen, but while falling. Duffy constructed a table the same shape as a falling figure, so that you can photograph David previously mentioned like he's looking down. (Take a look here to have an example: (http://www.paulgormanis.com/?p=5305) audemars piguet royal oak gold . A mishap eventually made the image superior, Boshier recalls. "David arrived to the shoot using a bandaged right-hand. He'd burnt it by spilling something hot upon it like coffee. The make-up artist - the best inside trade, working for people like Liz Taylor and Michael Jackson - was horrified. It will take him a long time to discover the burned hand look uninjured. David, combing his hair, said: "No let's leave the bandage". This coincidence took the look one step further, bandaged hand and comb included!"Nose jobAnother interesting creative feat concerned Bowies nose. He wished to simulate G-Force for your photo, like in the event the face of an pilot deforms by G-forces while breaking the sound barrier. That's how David desired to depict his speed of falling. Boshier: "The cover appears to be if a little bit of glass is pressed against Bowie's nose, however the execution was far more complex. The makeup artist had attached fishing lines to David's face. Through the shoot, someone pulled the lines, to find the G-Force look".Blurred Polaroid's and logoDuring this process, David decided which he needed more blurred Polaroid's as opposed to the perfect images. He liked the sloppy type of the Polaroid's that photographers take to check everything before the final shoot. But Bowie wanted a loose look. "He also wanted the word Lodger in three languages, i really incorporated france, German and Japanese in a postcard image, with RCA Records London address and invented LODGER logo", Boshier recalls replica cartier ballon bleu .The within sleeveWhile everyone was busy creating the cover, nobody had said anything about the inside cover. Boshier asked David over it. "You undertake it, simply do everything you like", the singer answered. Boshier already knew his theme: time. Boshier: "I choose all pictures - the famous autopsy picture of Che Guevara, Andrea Mantegna's painting 'Death of Christ', the image of the kid, a shape within an autopsy room as well as the replica watches -because every one has with regards to time, live and death, beginning and end, the circle of life".Time?That's it? Can there be no more to express to in regards to the replica watches? It can't be that Boshier included these remarkable replica watches coincidentally, only because his theme was time? "There is certainly not more to it", the artist confirms. "Not a good song on the album speaking about time. It can be pure coincidence". No Omega fascination, no space- or flight- related sympathies; Bowie wasn't a watch collector nor was Boshier. In fact, Boshier recalls, the explanation for those replica watches was very practical:"I chose them from your lots of watch pictures since i liked the double watch image and it was obviously a good, clear photograph. It might have been other replica watches, by any brand. Irrrve never even knew these were Omega's".1970 magazine adBoshier covers a dual image, but research learns that the pictures come from a 1970's magazine ad , showing a Speedmaster a Flightmaster and several other contemporary Omega's. There have been different versions with this advertisement, all showing over two replica watches, including written information per watch. The latter explains the numbers from the watch pictures: they reference the accompanying texts.As you can see inside image above (extracted from this site), the Speedmaster Professional definitely seems to be a 145.022 (caliber 861) but it also has a applied logo. This will mean it truly is on the list of transitional models or it's one of those final 145.012 models (with regard 1039 bracelet, caliber 321 and straight-cut pre-owned). The Flightmaster can be a reference 145.013 (introduced in 1969) with caliber 910.Coincidence huh?After his memoires on the covert art design, Boshier points at the next incident that should do with the coincidence factor. "I remember I visited Bowie's apartment in the Turkish sector. After lunch David gave me a tour through his home. All rooms were large wealthy in, watches white ceilings and quite bare - only objects people. One room was distinct from others. It had been packed with objects, plush, ornaments, heavy velvet draped curtains, Tiffany lamps, dark colours and a fireplace with oil paintings of Grand Mama with hair in a bun and Grand Papa using a pipe. I was thinking Bowie had left it the way he think it is - like a contrast. Or even to create German visitors feel safe. How wrong I had been No coincidence with David Bowie. He previously totally choreographed each rooms including that room like he previously always created everything - like the bandaged hand plus the comb on the record cover shoot and many types of his other personas. If David had chosen the replica watches, yet also have given you a story without coincidence. But he liked some tips i chose for his album art and that's no coincidence, beyond doubt. It stood the exam of energy.More details about Derek Boshier can be obtained here. Details about photographer Brian Duffi here.
