Scott Jacobs took photo-realism to new heights as he became the first ever officially licensed Harley Davidson artist going on to undertake countless important commissions that include collaborations with the estates of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley.
Cuervo y Sobrinos have created an exclusive limited edition timepiece, a collaborative design that celebrates Scott’s legendary painting “Live to Ride”. Each watch in the edition is a recreation of Scott Jacobs’ landmark painting “Live to Ride”. Every watch is individually numbered and engraved with Scott’s signature.
Two limited editions have been created for collectors. The first is a limited edition of 60 Quartz watches with a real price of $1,350.00. The second is a limited edition of just 30 Automatic Watches with a retail price of $ 2,350.00.
As his first ever Harley Davidson painting, “Live to Ride” represents a key moment in Scott’s career. It would immediately catch the attention of Harley Davidson Motorcycles leading to him becoming their first ever officially licensed artist. The motorcycle featured in the painting actually won the Best Custom Paint prize at the 1993 Daytona Boardwalk Show where Willie G Davidson himself was one of the judges.
Scott Jacobs says that his photo-realistic compositions can take over one hundred hours to complete as he uses a paintbrush the size of a pencil point.
