T-Rex Bronze

“I wanted this collaboration to capture the fun and child-like inspiration of the original, but with a material and finishing which invoke a more organic and rugged aesthetic, with a keen sense of history. “

- William Massena

Straddling time from the ancient to the immediate, T-Rex Bronze creates a harmonious balance between mechanical and organic forms. This model switches out the original steel for bronze, the copper alloy whose mastery amounted to a technological revolution so immense that it ushered in a new age of early civilization.

The feet of the T-Rex Bronze are aged to create an earthy brown patina, and the entire bronze structure is oxidized by hand to “lock in time” its color and the unique characteristics of the material. This individual patination and stabilization means that no two clocks are alike.
