Very Rate Orient Collection in Turtle Shell

This piece of vintage Orient automatic watch (21 jewels) circa 1980s was produced for the fashionable collectors of that era. The top of its casing was a piece of SEA turtle shell cut into shape that decorates the front of the watch.
This piece was discovered and bought from a shop in Asia in late 1990s as a “brand new old stock”. I.e. The watch is completely new but of old model.

In comparison below with a same model vintage but in ordinary steel casing (yet well worn out) this Turtle Shell collection is truly a great find. Nowadays watch and goods sold are not allowed to use animal materials.

Here is another version of art work project model based on famous artist Romero Britto.

The watch dial design is “Mia’s Jungle” art created by Britto.  The light blue ocean scheme for the watch’s case and rubber strap is more commonly found on the market, as compared with the special edition that is in total black scheme. (see the blog post dated 3 June 2012).

Extracts of Romero Britto’s bio:

Romero Britto was born in Recife, Brazil in 1963. Self-taught at an early age, he painted on surfaces such as newspapers. In 1983, he traveled to Paris where he was introduced to the work of Matisse and Picasso. He combined influences from cubism with pop, to create a vibrant, iconic style that The New York Times describes, “exudes warmth, optimism and love.”

In 1988, Britto moved to Miami and emerged as an international artist. In the following year, he was selected alongside Andy Warhol and Keith Haring for Absolut Vodka’s “Absolut Art” campaign. Britto’s pop sensibility has since leant itself to many collaborations with such brands as Audi, Bentley, Disney, Technomarine, Evian and FIFA, for whom he created an official poster for the 2010 World Cup. He has also illustrated several books published by Simon & Schuster and Rizzoli. Britto’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in over 100 countries, including the Salon Nationale des Beaux-Arts exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre in 2008 and 2010. He has also created public art installations for the O2 Dome (Berlin), Hyde Park (London), John F. Kennedy Airport (New York), and Cirque du Soleil at Super Bowl XLI.

Shown here an unique watch produced by Techno Marine, specially desgned by the famous artist.
