Groundbreaking jewelry makers Rouge DZN has created its latest masterpiece made from Military Spec metal, the Armadillo 161 bracelet.
With one 161 parts, the Armadillo 161 will be a true test of 5-Axis and 9-Axis machining capability.
Tolerances are extremely tight, and this will undoubtedly be the most badass object Rogue DZN has ever produced to date.
This thing is as tech as it gets. Each link is individually serial numbered, and paint-filled.
Each link is comprised of eight separate custom machined pieces. The off-set angled clasp has a captured thumbscrew that allows for extremely easy opening and closing. The secondary thumbscrews integrated into the latch, are actually integrated mini-wrenches to adjust the bracelet. One is the Rogue custom tri-blade wrench and the other is a T5-Torx wrench.
Designed as a true test of the symbiotic union of organic forms and mechanical function, each of the 161 custom pieces of the bracelet are individually 5-Axis and 9-Axis machined from military-spec, G5 aerospace grade titanium billet block. The process of creation requires well over 400 machine-hours to complete
About Rouge DZN
In a world where jewelry has been dulled down by spineless herds of yes-men and clueless corporations, Rogue DZN dares to create groundbreaking works of art in unprecedented fashion. Through bold acts of imagination, creativity and engineering is expertly transformed from a mere thought to a striking reality.
The materials used by Rogue DZN do not lie. They’re not like anything you’ve seen before. They’re not cast or plated. They’re not following any trend ever attempted before. What you receive are the raw and uncompromising properties of the atomic number 22. All jewelry is machined from billet block, Military Spec. G5 aerospace grade titanium, one of the strongest and most durable materials on the planet; a material commonly used to build spacecrafts, aircrafts, naval ships, armor plating and surgical implants. Designed with the same software used to create The US military’s F22 joint strike fighter, every millimeter of every curve is obsessively perfected in 3D space, a feat impossible to achieve by hand. Due to subtle harmonics in machining, each Rogue DZN piece has its own unique fingerprint and is individually serial numbered.
