L’Epée 1839 proposes a full collection of modern table clocks called La Tour. Their sophisticated design, eight-day skeleton movement, and play on transparency and light unite around one key theme: simplicity. As clockmaking is not the simplest of art forms, L’Epée has grappled with numerous constraints on its road to creating the very best, successfully adapting its designs to technical complexities. With its polished surfaces and its Côtes de Genève on the front plates adding texture and verticality to the clocks, the modern movement play with reflections and perspective. The Swiss Made Caliber 1853 movement was created entirely by L’Epée. La Tour collection features two plates with various finishes depending on the model selected, a complete geartrain outlining the movement, its escapement, and a presentation structure consisting of a base and glass dome. The entire movement is made up of 143 parts, passionately assembled by master watchmakers.
Far from the perfectly mastered, spectacular horological complications for which L’Epée 1839 is known, it is the balance of aesthetics and technical choices that lends the La Tour collection its true intensity.
