The piece, titled BREAKUP, features both stills and video of an unseen woman wearing red high heels stomping on and destroying hundreds of high-end replica watches, with her stiletto heel shattering in-demand models such as perfect fake Rolex GMT-Master ‘Pepsis’, Audemars Piguet Royal Oaks and even a Patek Philippe Nautilus ‘Tiffany Dial’.
Kelly explains that the work is inspired “by the sensational breakup between the Italian legendary footballer Francesco Totti and his wife,” elaborating:
It’s a visually striking piece of art, but one that would easily put any super clone watch enthusiast’s teeth on edge. Watch Tony Kelly’s BREAKUP below.
Now, before you start clutching your pearls, those watches are almost certainly fake. For one, it would be very hard to shatter a Patek or best 1:1 replica Rolex’s crystal just by stomping on them with heels like that: the sapphire crystal that high-end watch crystals are made of is extremely tough.
More relevantly, if those aaa quality fake watches uk were real, Kelly would have had to have forked out tens of millions of dollars to afford them. The Tiffany Nautilus alone is worth anywhere between US$275,000 and $6.5 million…
This isn’t the first time Kelly has destroyed a high-end watch for art’s sake. In 2019, he produced a similar piece called Gold Digger, which showed a woman with candy red nails holding a broken cheap fake Rolex Day-Date ‘President’, prints of which can be purchased from his website. It’s not clear whether that high quality copy Rolex was fake, either.
Francesco Totti, the inspiration for BREAKUP, is one of the most famous football players of all time. The 46-year-old striker married Ilary Blasi, a former showgirl and TV host in 2005: the couple has often been referred to as the “Italian Beckhams” thanks to the obsession Italian tabloids and paparazzi have had with them.
Earlier this year in July, the pair announced their divorce, after Totti allegedly caught Blasi cheating on him with a younger man – which then prompted him to start seeing a younger woman, too.
It’s the pettiness of their divorce that has inspired Kelly. According to Corriere della Sera, Blasi took some of Totti’s Rolexes replica for sale UK and in retaliation, Totti took some of her designer handbags. How charming.
