L’Epee 1839 – Medusa clock – 73.6000/144

The Epee 1839 manufacture produced a masterpiece of fine Swiss watchmaking mechanics with its Medusa. The dome is in Murano glass. This Medusa will look great in a living room or office

The central mass of Medusa is formed by a large transparent dome of hand-blown Murano glass that evokes the bell-shaped body of a mature jellyfish. Two rotating rings, one displaying the hours and the other displaying the minutes, are visible through the dome, and the time is read off a single fixed indicator that extends over the rings. Like a jellyfish glowing in the abyss, Medusa glows in the dark thanks to Super-LumiNova. A 2.5Hz (18,000vph) movement beats underneath the time indication, forming the pulsating heart of this mechanical creature.

The movement of Medusa is entirely new and required over two years of development by L’Epée 1839. Whereas the other co-creations had separate points of winding and setting, Medusa required a combined system for winding and setting, since the surrounding glass dome limits access to the movement.

MEDUSA COMES IN THREE LIMITED EDITIONS OF 50 PIECES, EACH IN A DIFFERENT COLOR – BLUE, GREEN AND PINK – CHOSEN TO REFLECT THE NATURAL HUES OF A JELLYFISH.
