A giant traditional unique carriage clock

Qatar Discovery

Qatar clock sits among the clocks designed to stay timeless. Each one has its own personality and yet they all have in common the quest of being among the best. Each one has its Tourbillon escapement set on top of the movement.

A giant traditional unique carriage clock

The tourbillon:
Considered to be one of the three finest horological complications, the Tourbillon is placed at the very top of the structure in these unique clocks, for all to admire. Its dimensions are such that the beholder is quickly captivated by the majestic waltz of the balance wheel. The design of the bridge supporting the carriage is a new design made especially on demand. Entirely produced in the L’Epée workshops, it is made of gold-plated brass with a flawless finish.

Hours and ½hours Strike:
While a wristwatch can only accommodate small gongs, this Qatar Collection strikes every hour and ½ hours on a long black gong visible on the back of the clock, that strives for a rich and convincing sound. When it is one O’clock, the clock will strike once, at Two, twice, etc, until noon and its twelve gongs. In the afternoon, it will start again with one gong. The initiation of the mechanism is placed on the front of the clock, next to the hour-wheel so the entire strike-process can be admired.
