A significant and iconic piece of the clock is not just a device to tell time, but surely t will help to add more value to the appearance of the space where it is placed. Back in the old days, there is an astronomical clock known as grandfather’s clock in which some people have just started to search and find some to add to their houses of today. On the other hand, there has been a fresh take on that idea of grandfather’s clock done by Lee Broom from Great Britain that leads to the so-called Time Machine. He said that the main inspiration is the so-called brutalist architecture that his idea came up to produce this kind of iconic clock.
Although it is not the first and the only modern piece of grandfather’s clock, this one named Time Machine is a decent piece that will easily beautify any space instantly. This Time Machine is made of a monolithic block out of Carrara marble. That is a way to start creating a decent piece of the modern clock, right? That particular material has been viral amidst designers and studios for a decade. It offers a majestic appeal along with its intricate mechanism to deal with. Thus Lee Broom decided to go for that material with the purpose of creating a modern and chic clock in such majestic appearance.
Even though the idea of a grandfather’s clock is traditional, Lee Broom wanted to create a contemporary piece away from that traditionalism. He wanted to say that even an old idea can be brought to an entirely new level by altering some aspects of it. Thus along the way of the designing and manufacturing of this Time Machine, there has been a more modernist silhouette design along the lines of this clock. There are straight lines and faceted angles as well to admire and enjoy that somewhat similar to the so-called brutalist architecture style.
Inside that modern appeal of this clock, there is a pretty traditional mechanism though for the clock to function just as old pieces of grandfather’s clock. It has been modified a bit so that it only uses one mean weight. Original grandfather’s clock uses two primary weights. The entire things inside the watch that include hands, pendulum, and the importance are all precisely handcrafted from solid brass. The shape of the pendulum is done in a pretty different effect to the triangular weight of it.
