What defines bronze?

Nereide Bronzo

Bronze, a combination of copper and tin, with possible additions of elements like aluminum or nickel, stands as a noble material endowed with unique properties. Characterized by high mechanical strength, durability, and corrosion resistance, bronze also possesses the extraordinary ability to develop a patina over time, lending objects a distinctive charm. In Venice, artisan workshops played a fundamental role in the history of bronze, using it to craft renowned works of art and artifacts. This noble metal has permeated Venetian culture, becoming an integral part of the city's rich artistic heritage and contributing to the lagoon city's artisanal tradition.


Bronze in Venetian Art and Craftsmanship

The historical bond between Venice and bronze has deep roots in the creation of the famous Horses of Saint Mark. These majestic bronze statues, forged in ancient Greece, found their home on the façade of the Basilica of Saint Mark in the 13th century, initiating a rich artistic and artisanal tradition linked to this noble metal. The Horses of Saint Mark swiftly became a symbol of power and prosperity for the lagoon city. Their presence not only enriched the artistic heritage of Venice but also contributed to establishing bronze as a precious and irreplaceable material in the hands of Venetian artisans.


Bronze Processing

In the realm of watchmaking, the intricate process of bronze craftsmanship demands precision beyond that of traditional techniques. It all begins with the meticulous design and fabrication of dedicated molds, crucial for ensuring the required level of accuracy. These carefully crafted molds serve as the foundation for producing semi-finished components, which subsequently undergo precision mechanical processes. The incorporation of advanced machinery facilitates the precise shaping of bronze, while the final touches entail meticulous artisanal work. Finally, this meticulous craftsmanship alternates seamlessly between polishing and satin finishes, resulting in a sophisticated and refined aesthetic that sets bronze timepieces apart in the world of horology.
