On the occasion of its 175th anniversary, high-end clock manufacturer L’Epée 1839 (founded in 1839 in Sainte-Suzanne, France), best known for table watches inspired and created by great designers, will unveil at the next Baselworld two anniversary creation – Starfleet Machine and Two Hands.
Animated by a flying tourbillon, the “Two Hands” clock was created in association with the self-taught and non-conformist famous inventor Vincent Calabrese. We are eager to see the unique timepiece at 2014 Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show, the biggest trade show of the international watch and jewellery industry.
The second anniversary clock is called Starfleet Machine and it is an intelligent mix between watch-making and spatial design. Drawn by the famous team of Swiss watch uber-luxury and uber-inventive manufacturer MB&F (founded by Maximilian Büsser), this timepiece has been inspired by the new generation of Star Trek’s vessels. In parallel with their collection of Horological Machines and Legacy Machines, MB&F have collaborated over the years with selected artists to create
“Performance Art” pieces, available as unique pieces or in limited editions. MB&F Performance Art pieces essentially see a MB&F Machine become the medium for the selected artist to paint or sculpt.
