Vannen Watches have announced the release of their newest timepiece, Nathan Jurevicius' Haven. Textured to look like a giant treehouse, the watch's strap features a ton of birds on it, with a big owl gazing out from the back of the watch's face. The back features two birds tweeting at each other in an engraving. It looks pretty cool!

Haven is out now, limited to 150 pieces and retailing at US$85. You can pick one up at Vannen Watches, and one lucky buyer will win both a Nathan Jurevicius owl print and a custom Akis resin piece from Cherry Vinyl, as well!

Vannen Watches, TADO's "Daydream" watch arrives Friday
by Brian Szabelski

Vannen Watches' newest release is coming this week, and it's a collaboration with one of my favorite artist teams, TADO. On Friday, their "Daydream" watch will be on sale in the store, and Vannen's been posting some teasers of the box so far. Pics of the watch itself will be teased soon, hopefully, but just seeing that box makes me smile.

The watch is limited to just 150 pieces at US$85 each. All the watches will be signed and numbered, plus there's a surprise in store for buyers. We'll find out more about that later this week, it seems, but I'm excited! How about you?

Tomopop Interview: David Stowe of Vannen Watches
by Colette Bennett

We've kept tabs on the Vannen Designer Watch series since it launched, reviewed models such as Buff MonsterHalloween Exclusive and Huck Gee "Killing Time" from the XL Series, and basically frothed at the mouth when new watches were announced. I love the idea of wearing art on my wrist, and Vannen founder David Stowe has done exactly that with his innovative accessory line. 

Any business has a story behind it, and we've been curious about Vannen's for a while. Luckily, David was kind enough to spare us some time to answer a few questions. Hit the jump to find out how and why Vannen launched, what artists we will see in the series next, and what special surprises we can expect later this year. Can you say Comic-Con exclusives? Yes, you can!

Oh, and did we mention we have the exclusive reveal of the price of the Luke Chueh watch? Yep ... we got that!

Hit the jump for more.
