Inspiration / IDEA concept:
I set out to build a stylish art model geared toward a sophisticated adult audience. To my surprise, a luxury mechanical wristwatch had not yet been attempted. The most qualified candidate being Rolex’s iconic flagship marque, the Submariner. Owing to its unparalleled cache in the pop-culture zeitgeist.
The sturdy, hard edged aesthetic of the “super” case design lent itself to being reconstructed in Lego system. The result. An impressive, eye-catching, exhibition piece. Destined to be displayed in a place of prominence in your home study or office.
Design Features / Functions:
Novelties include a signed brevet crown, functional rotating bezel, gilt “Mercedes” hour, sword - minute and lollipop - second hands, luminous applied indices and date window.
Total Piece Count: 1586
And requisite construction techniques are sure to make for a challenging, yet highly rewarding, building experience. Guaranteed to engage and entertain adult horology enthusiasts for quite some time. Pun intended!
