These are the Rollei 35 Royal Urushi and Urushi Gold “Sterne Himmel” or “Starlit Skies” Special Edition. Manufactured between 1997-1998 with only 200 in the Gold edition.

All hand laqured camera parts in blue, and with gold flakes embedded in the laquer in the Gold edition. Both using traditional Japanese Urushi techniques. The metal parts of the camera are gold plated except for the lens barrel which is chrome.

The metal middle part of the camera is painted in a gray-golden Urushi lacquer with gold metallic effect. The pictures cannot capture the intense beauty and luster of the noble surfaces.  All other parts are 18 K gold plated.
