Product Description

The drawing printed on the strap and dial of Afreau Couti (GZ197) presents everyday life in an African landscape, with baobab trees and people talking, working, living together, going about their daily tasks. According to the artists, it’s inspired by traditional African and Pacific Islander drawings, although there is also a touch of the Körner Union way of seeing. This delightful piece has a white-grounded print on its plastic strap, a red plastic buckle and loop and a polished red case. Brightly coloured elements of the design appear in relief on the white of the dial.
