The year 2016. TIME VEHICLE takes us back to the past... 1961... 1916... 1861. Whoosh! Here we are! The American wilderness rarely intersected by railway lines is all around us. The brand new W. Crooks locomotive is abruptly stopped at the entrance to the truss bridge. It raises clouds of dust by braking. What's happening? It's a robbery! A gang of lawbreakers called TRYB wanted by arrest warrant, claims the entire train and its contents. What is so valuable inside? It's quite simple: old watch parts :)
This is the second time, when TRYB has invited someone with special talent and above average skills to cooperate... "because cooperation is better than competition". This steampunk pendant with a locomotive model is the result of cooperation between two workshops: TIME VEHICLE and TRYB. This medallion is unique, made entirely and from scratch by hand. Time Vehicle's work is an amazing, tailor-made setting for a motif. Designed so that its reverse resembles the front of an antique locomotive. It is made of copper and brass aged and patinated. The composition inside i.e. a miniature model of the W. Crooks two-cylinder locomotive from 1861 with a tender, as well as tracks and a truss bridge were created in the TRYB atelier. It is completed by an antique dial from a Chronometre Romeo pocket watch. Motif is finished with resin for total safety of delicate, miniature constructions.
The outer diameter of the main part of this medallion is about 45mm, the total length of the locomotive pendant is about 9.7 cm. The steam engine with a tender are only 40mm long. It was bought by a famous polish writer:
