My dream is to make unimaginable mechanical art a reality.

TIMEBURNER IS A NOSTALGIC TRIBUTE TO THE EARLIEST INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES. A SALUTE TO NOISE, GREASE AND CHROME. AND A TESTIMONY TO THE MEN AND WOMEN THAT CREATED AND TAMED THEM.

In the 19th century, the internal combustion engine revolutionised the world. TIMEBURNER is my horological interpretation of this paradigm change.

Just like an engine transforms chemical energy (petrol) into mechanical energy (movement); TIMEBURNER converts the owner's ignition and winding of the spark plug (crown) into mechanical movement and drives the piston along a non-linear time scale. This piston replaces the hands in the role of telling the time.
