With the advancement in art and in culture; precious works of art are no longer just approachable by those who are experts in the field. Now, the general public can also get a close glimpse of masterpieces which are delicately replicated with the original’s size, color, brightness and texture. In hands with Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam; Acestar Concept Limited has executed an all new exhibition of the Van Gogh RELIEVO™ Collection and Van Gogh Timepieces from now until the 27th of April, 2014 at Oriental Watch Company, Central.
With top- quality replicas of Van Gogh’s famous The Harvest, 1888, Boulevard de Clichy, 1887 and Wheatfield under thunderclouds, 1890; the brand is also paying homage to the artist’s 160th anniversary with a new collection of Diamond and Chronograph series watches. Accompanying the pre- order available replication of the paintings are not only the watches introduced last year including Sunflowers, Almond Blossom and the Self- Portrait but also two new quartz series of the Harvest and Boulevard de Clichy.
