Miniature Brazilian Horological Motorcycle Art

Brazilian, Jose Geraldo Reis Pfau and his miniature motorcycles made entirely of watch parts. The cases, movements, crystals, bracelets and bands are regurgitated into very appropriate representations of every conceivable style of motorbike.

57 year old Pfau makes the miniatures on the weekends as a hobby. His passion for motorcycles began in the sixties with the 1969 film, "Easy Rider." As stated on his website, "It is a personal collection and they are not for sale yet, but he hopes to be able to sell them in the future. He owns more them 200 miniatures at the moment. In the beginning the pieces were applied on wood frames to be hung on walls. They then became three-dimensional pieces, developing into sculptures as shown here."

Featuring everything from vintage bikes, dirt bikes, hogs, and choppers. There is even a series of famous movie bikes like the Harley Davidson "Captain America" from Easy Rider and the Norton 500 from The Motorcycle Diaries.
