Nikon announced the release of a number of commemorative models and goods celebrating Nikon’s 100th Anniversary, which falls on July 25, 2017. One of them is replica of Nikon Model I (launched in 1948) in almost full-scale.
This model is made entirely out of Swarovski crystals of different colors and textures. Crystals processed with dark color effect are used for the camera’s artificial leather section.
It is engraved with the Nikon logo, lettering around the lens, and the company mark from 1948 and limited edition number. Nikon didn’t announce how much any of this is going to cost but more information will be provided in June.
