At first, he developed several images of motorcycles, but after reading about the artist who created the miniature motorcycle from wood, pottery, wire and other materials, he decided to create the same work of art, but using completely different materials ie from old watches.

The pieces of wristwatches were the inspiration sources of his unique creations collected through a shop's advertising campaigns. Alexandre Ranieri Peters, a personal friend of his and the shop owner created a campaign where whoever wanted to buy a new watch or a pair of glasses could give their old ones as a first instalment.

Here are several pictures of miniature motorcycles which made by José Geraldo Reis Pfau. (All pictures taken from: http://adf.ly/1dk67S)

This then provides the raw materials required to experiment and create a unique motorcycle of wristwatches. Although Pfau only creates his artwork during the weekend, but he has a collection of hundreds of miniature motorcycles are specially made from old watches. In addition to making a miniature motorcycle with the use of the wristwatch parts, Pfau also managed to create the same miniatures of the parts of used glasses.

In the beginning the pieces were applied on wood frames to be hung on walls. They then became three-dimensional pieces, developing into sculptures. These miniature motorcycles look very much real. Metal, glass, aluminium plastic, silver and even gold pieces are put together, creating very different forms.
