"We are thrilled to partner with FLuD to develop Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
products," said Alix Kram, Vice President, Lifestyle and Retail Marketing,

brands, but we have the opportunity to work with amazing and influential
artists like Ron English to develop visually stimulating and memorable
pieces."

Each watch features anover-sizedface with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
graphic and a graffiti-style logo on the band. The launch is also joined by
the release of four graphic Tees carrying a similar motif.

"Ron English is a legend, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had every kid
in the 1980s dreaming of turning into a turtle – and I'm sure they had pet
sales for turtles flying through the roof too!," said Doug Cohen, Founder and
CEO,FLuDWatches. "Being able to see a legendary artist put his spin on an
iconic creation like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles isabsolutelycrazy – and
being able to have the canvas he uses for it be aFLuDwatch, is just an
honor."

Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiered on Sept. 29 to 3.9
million viewers and has since grown in its audience double-digits. The
26-episode, half-hour action-comedy series breathes new life into the wildly
popular band of reptile brothers played by Jason Biggs (American Pie) as
"Leonardo," Rob Paulsen (Planet Sheen) as "Donatello" (Paulsen also voiced
the original "Raphael" from 1987-1996 in the very first TMNT series), Greg
Cipes (Teen Titans) as "Michelangelo" and Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as
"Raphael,". The series airs regularly on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT).

About Ron English
One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, New York-based
painter, designer and street artist Ron English has bombed the global
landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies,
books, television, and album covers. English coined the term POPaganda to
describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from
superhero mythology to totems of art history, to create a hilarious visual
language that turns advertising into "subvertizing" and parody into
illumination.

About FLuD
FLuD was established in 2007 by a few good men who loved food, fashion and
good business. In an effort to bring the watch back to its rightful place as
one of the ultimate accessories, the concept for FLuD was born. Our goal is to
create unique, fresh watches for the casual and streetwear scene without the
pretentiousness or price tag. Fresh style, nice price, it's a simple formula.
We could get wordier, but it's not what FLuD is about - it's all about the
watches.
