Massena LAB studio founded by William Massena re-imagined a bronze version of the T-Rex table clock that MB&F and L’Epee unveiled last year. Bearing a Murano glass dial, the 201-piece work is made from bronze, including the legs, which are modeled after 3D scans from dinosaur fossils, aged and stabilized by hand, creating a dark brown colour.
“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
Behind the dial is a 138-component movement designed and manufactured in-house by L’Epée 1839, crowned by a balance beating at the rate of 2.5Hz (18,000vph) with a power reserve of 8 days.
Priced at USD 27,000 the MB&F X L’Epée X Massena LAB T-Rex Bronze Clock comes in a limited edition of only 15 pieces and is available at Massena Lab’s website.
