We’ve written about the Berd Vay’e sculptures in the past, because they are just so darn cool. Sure, the price tag puts them mostly out of reach for me, but a fellow can dream about having one on his desk, can’t he? While the prior ones have been a bit chaotic (see here), this latest version puts things into an organic form.
By that, I mean spheres. While the prior sculptures have required precise placement that looks like an explosion of parts, this new Galaxy requires (I imagine) even more precision yet. You’ve got the globes of watch gears set in there looking like a mini, self-contained universe, all within the Borg ship. Or so I imagine. These look awesome as they are – I can only hope they experiment with making those individual globes luminous (even different colors, how sweet would that be?) If you want to pick one up, a cool $7,500 is what you need to bring. berdvaye.com

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
