TIMEX Sprite Calendar 'Mondrian' (1974)
Is it a watch or is it art. I guess it is both! A beautiful colorful dial design combined with the rugged appearence of a 70's Skindiver. TIMEX hit it right on the nail. The first one I actually saw in the metal besides the picture in the French 1974 catalog. And I was so lucky to win the auction. Very happy to have it in the collection.

Piet Mondriaan - painter (1872 - 1944)
The dial configuration reminds me of the art of a famous Dutch painter Piet Mondriaan. He lived from 1872 until 1944 and was known for being one of the pioneers of 20th century abstract art, as he changed his artistic direction from figurative painting to an increasingly abstract style, reducing it to simple geometric elements.
