Horological Sculptures by Berd Vaye

All fans and enthusiasts of luxury watches and jewelry will be impressed with Berd Vaye’s unique and understated sculptures, presented at this year’s Watch Time New York exhibition.
The sculptures come in a variety of shapes and sizes (Lost in Time – The Skull; Time Squared – The Cube; Horosphere – The Sphere and Time Framed – Wall Art in one size only) and they use both watch and clock parts. The manufacturing process involves pouring an initial layer of Lucite. Lucite is one one of several types of polymethyl methylacrylate, which although a plastic is sometimes called acrylic glass.

Other well known names for acrylic glass include Plexiglass and Perspex. Once the initial layer of thermoplastic has been poured, watch and clock parts are embedded in it, and then another layer is poured on top. The process means that depending on the angle at which you look at the sculptures, you might see either an apparently random distribution, or clearly visible layers.
Each of these models is available in a limited edition and there are just 999 pieces available. Each piece comes with an asset of unique Swiss-made parts that have been carefully sorted and polished. Time Framed, the wall art, is also available in a limited edition with just 250 pieces available.  The sculptures include a metallic plaque which is customized and a piece number is engraved on each as well.

Each of these comes with care instructions and a Certificate of Authenticity. Production is done in North America alone.
Berd Vaye was founded in 2014 two partners, Eduard Kurayev and Albert Akbashev, both watch enthusiasts. Their creations (from $2,700) incorporate vintage watch parts into cast resin structure, whether square, round, in the shape of a skull, or event as a flat framed surface. What makes matters more interesting is the fact that the brand has the ability to tailor the supplied components to the buyer in question.
